rate of the process is proportional to the concentration of the catalyst and fractional power of the conceatratioDS of the substrate and hydrogen but beyond a certain limiting value of theExpand
The Role of Ecdysone on the Chitinase Enzyme in the Development of Spodoptera Litura
One of the early events in the molt of an insect is apolysis, during which detachment of the epidermal cells from the old cuticle occurs. The final event is the shedding of the old cuticle. BetweenExpand
Problems of diseases on marine fish and prawn farming in India
