Characterization and Activity of Digestive Enzymes in Different Sizes of Nile Tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus L.)

Abstract

The activity of protease, amylase and lipase from the pseudostomach, upper intestine, lower intestine and liver of 5.7, 35.8 and 92.1 g male Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus L.) was determined. Protease activity had an optimal pH of 12, 9 and 9 for the 5.7, 35.8 and 92.1 g fish respectively and the highest specific activity was found in the 35.8 g fish… (More)
