A series of experiments were carried out to investigate the role of proteinase enzymes in the growth of larvae of the sheep blowfly, Lucilia cuprina. First, instar larvae were incubated on an artificial growth media in the presence of various concentrations of inhibitors of all the major proteinase classes. Inhibitors of serine proteinases and aminopeptidases were found to cause significant growth inhibition and in some cases death of the larvae within 24 h, suggesting that these enzymes were… CONTINUE READING
