Abstract

The role of hippuric acid formation as a mechanism for detoxication of benzoic acid in the silkworm has been investigated. Benzoate is inhibitory to the growth of the silkworm and excreted as hippuric acid, which is not toxic. Hippuric acid is not a normal constituent of excreta. Synthesis of hippuric acid has been shown to occur in the intestines of the silkworm. Hippuricase activity is present in the fat body and silk-gland tissue.
