We determined some biochemical properties of Oulema melanopus larval gut proteases. We found adult midgut enzyme preparations yielded results similar to whole-larval preparations, permitting studies of the very small whole-larval preparations. Protein preparations were analyzed using FITC-casein as a substrate. Acidic pH is optimal for proteolytic activity(More)
