    • Abstract

       

      Activities of some of the dehydrogenases involved in the formation of polyols were examined in diapause, non-diapause and acid treated artificial non-diapause eggs. The studies revealed that NADP-SDH may be important in the production of sorbitol during the onset of diapause and that NAD-GPDH may be playing a more important role than NADP-GDH in the production of glycerol.
