Biochemical and cytoimmunological evidence for the control of Aedes aegypti larval trypsin with Aea-TMOF.

Abstract

Trypsin and chymotrypsin-like enzymes were detected in the gut of Aedes aegypti in the four larval instar and pupal developmental stages. Although overall the amount of trypsin synthesized in the larval gut was 2-fold higher than chymotrypsin, both enzymes are important in food digestion. Feeding Aea-Trypsin Modulating Oostatic Factor (TMOF) to Ae. aegypti… (More)
