Abstract 1. 1. The effect of proteolytic enzymes on the crystalline styles of the bivalves Tresus capax and Crassostrea gigas is examined. 2. 2. 1000 unit initial concentrations of trypsin cause rapid physical disintegration of Crassostrea style and slower disintegration of Tresus style at pH 6.0 and 7.5. 3. 3. The effect of the trypsin is to hydrolyse peptide bonds in the crystalline style protein. The effect is therefore digestive. 4. 4. Bivalves, such as Crassostrea, which have soft… Expand
