Changes in free amino acids and hydrogen-ion-concentration between the healthy and diseased Antheraea proylei larva


O K Monoroma, M Suresh Singh, O Dwijamani Singh

Certain changes in the free amino acids composition and hydrogen-ion-concentration between the healthy and diseased larval gut were studied in Antheraea proylei. The healthy larval gut wall and gut contents has been found to contain thirteen and twelve free amino acids respectively in different concentration whereas the diseased larval gut wall and gut contents showed only five and four amino acids respectively. This has revealed that the pathogenic organisms affect the amino acids composition adversely besides changing the hydrogen-ion-concentrations of the digestive tract to a great extent.
