Effect of various factors on the activity of trehalase from the larvae ofSesamia inferens walker (Insecta)

Abstract

Trehalase from the salivary glands and the midgut ofSesamia inferens showed optimum activity at pH 5.8, and at temperatures of 50 and 60°C respectively. The increase in the incubation period, enzyme concentration, and substrate concentration respectively increased the end-product, the hydrolysis, and the rate of hydrolysis of the substrate. Dialysis did not affect, tryptophan accelerated, and other amino acids and end-product inhibited the enzyme activity.
