The hydrolysis of sucrose, the principal dietary source of carbon for aphids, is catalysed by a gut alpha-glucosidase/transglucosidase activity. An alpha-glucosidase, referred to as APS1, was identified in both a gut-specific cDNA library and a sucrase-enriched membrane preparation from guts of the pea aphid Acyrthosiphon pisum by a combination of genomic and proteomic techniques. APS1 contains a predicted signal peptide, and has a predicted molecular mass of 68 kDa (unprocessed) or 66.4 kDa… CONTINUE READING
