Extraction of microsomal fraction from midguts of western spruce budworm Choristoneura occidentalis F., and rat liver, and their ability to epoxidize aldrin



Extraction of microsomal fraction from midguts of western spruce budworm Choristoneura occidentalis F., and rat liver, and their ability to epoxidize aldrin



Pertanika 8(2): 231-236



In the laboratory in Malaysia, microsomal fractions were isolated from the mid-guts of larvae of the tortricid Choristoneura occidentalis and from rat liver and assayed for cytochrome P-450 content and aldrin epoxidase activity. Both microsomal preparations showed a distinct spectrum of cytochrome p-450. Relative to protein content, the cytochrome P-450 content of C. occidentalis was 7-9 times as low as that of the rat liver.
