Sridhara, S and Ananthasamy, TS (1963) Blood proteins of the silkworm Bombyx mori L. In: Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Sciences - Section B, 58 (1). pp. 19-27.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
The qualitative and quantitative aspects of the proteins of the silkworm blood were studied by the technique of agarophoresis. The blood of larvae at the final stage revealed the presence of six different protein zones. Considerable differences in the patterns were observed at different stages of growth. There was an increase in the total nitrogen of the blood up to the 5th instar and then came a sudden decrease in the one-day old pupae. Nitrogen concentration was at its highest in egg 1 stage and the electrophoretic pattern closely corresponded to the final larval pattern. Results indicate to the involvement of silk glands in the synthesis and breakdown of a protein designated as protein 5.
