Alkaline phosphatase in the integument of Ceratitis capitata. Developmental profile and functional properties



Alkaline phosphatase in the integument of Ceratitis capitata. Developmental profile and functional properties



Insect Biochemistry 174: 619-624



Electrophoretic analysis of alkaline phosphatase from the integument of Ceratitis capitata during development revealed 2 bands of enzyme activity, one corresponding to phosphatase activity during pupation and just prior to eclosion and the other during the middle of the pupal stage. On the contrary, in the haemolymph, there was one band on enzyme activity throughout all the developmental stages. The haemolymph alkaline phosphatase band did not comigrate with any integumental enzyme band.
