The Performance of Callosobruchus maculatus F. in Artificial Seeds Containing Proteins from Prosopis juliflora Seeds
Abstract:This work reportes the effects of isolated proteins from algaroba (Prosopis juliflo ra D.C.) seeds fractionated by ammonium sulfate at saturation 0-30percent., 30-60percent and 60-90percent. They were tested, in vitro, against papain and midgut homogenate of C. maculatus larvae. Also, the effects in vivo these protein fractions on the development of C. maculatus larvae were tested. F 30 / 60 fraction was effective against papain (72percent inhibition), midgut homogenate of larvae of C. maculatus (59,2percent inhibition) and in vivo with WD50 of 1,7percent

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
