1. Changes in the amounts and distribution of protein and respiratory enzymes have been estimated during the life cycle of the fly Lucilia cuprina. 2. The fully fed larva contains about 7mg. of protein, the pupa and newly emerged fly about 4mg., and the mature adult about 3mg. 3. There are two periods of incorporation of protein into particles at the expense of the soluble protein; the first, immediately after pupation, may store protein (0.5mg./insect) for use in adult development; the second… CONTINUE READING
