The exoskeleton of most invertebrate larval forms is made of chitin, which is a linear polysaccharide of β (1→4)-linked N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) residues. These larval forms offer extensive body surface for bacterial attachment and colonization. In nature, degradation of chitin involves a cascade of processes brought about by chitinases produced by(More)
