Characterization of the alimentary canal of the aphidophagous ladybird, Adalia bipunctata (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae): anatomical and histological approaches
TLDR
The anatomy of the alimentary canal of A. bipunctata seems to conform to its carnivorous and recent phylogenetic status within the family Coccinellidae.
Digestive enzymes level in the midgut ofAdoretus lasiopygus Burmeister (Scarabaeidae: Coleoptera)
Enzyme system pertaining to the midgut region ofAdoretus lasiopyous Burm. is studied in vitro. Most of the carbohydrases operate optimally in the mesomesenteron whereas proteinases and lipases behave
EFFECT OF VARIOUS FACTORS ON THE ACTIVITY OF SUCRASE FROM THE LARVAE OF SESAMIA INFERENS
Salivary gland sucrase activity from Sesamia inferens Wlk. was optimal at pH 5.8 and temperature 35°. It increased up to 1.5% final sucrose concentration, but higher concentrations had no effect. A
SOME PROPERTIES OF SALIVARY AMYLASES OF ADELPHOCORIS SUTURALIS (MIRIDAE), DOLYCORIS BACCARUM (PENTATOMIDAE), AND SEVERAL OTHER HETEROPTERAN SPECIES 1
TLDR
It seems highly probable that taxonomically related heteropterous insects might well be grouped with respect to the degree of activation of the salivary amylase by CI‐ or NOA3‐.

Proteolytic Enzymes in the House Fly, Musca Domestica (L.)
TLDR
It is of some interest for insect and comparative physiology that proteolytic activities at low pH levels have been found in the larval stages of the house fly.
The Hydrogen-Ion Concentration in the Alimentary Canal of Beetles Infesting Stored Grain and Grain Products
Wheat Hour, in separate mixtures with eight different pH indicators, was fed to 10 species of small, stored-grain-infesting beetles. In the 575 individuals dissected, the pH of fore-, mid-, and
Further Studies on Digestion of Food in the Gut of Trogoderma Larva. I. Digestive Enzymes-Carbohydrases
TLDR
Fourth-instar larvae of Trogoderma is counted of its great importance as a storedgrain pest and also to ascertain the physiological principles involved in the differences between the feeding habits of this insect and those of allied forms like Anthrenus and Dermestes, which feed on products of animal origin.
Digestion and Absorption of Food in Tribolium castaneum (Herbst)
TLDR
The physiological factors favoring establishment of Tribolium on certain specific host materials, namely, cereals, unless this knowledge is supplemented with information on the capacity of the insect to digest and absorb various chemical constituents in the source of its food are explained.
An Artificial Diet for Rearing Coccinellid Beetles
One of the most important factors limiting the use of coccinellid beetles in the biological control of certain insect pests is the difficulty experienced in rearing sufficient quantities. The
