Pepsin like activity in the mid gut of sarcophaga ruficornis and musca domestica


Applied Entomology and Zoology 10(4): 313-314
Pepsin like activity in the mid gut of sarcophaga ruficornis and musca domestica
The pepsin-like enzyme from the midgut of larvae and adults of S. ruficornis and M. domestica was studied. Hydrolysis of bovine albumin yielded 10 amino acids: alanine, arginine, cystine, glycine, histidine, leucine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and tyrosine. Hydrolysis of sheep hemoglobin liberated the same amino acids except that glutamine replaced threonine. Temperature and pH optima were determined. Enzyme activity was maximum in larvae and minimum in male flies.
