      Glycerol formation; silkworm eggs

    • Abstract


      The temporal pattern of accumulation of glycerol was examined during the early diapause period in silkworm eggs. Studies on the activities of two important enzymes viz. NADP-dependent glycerol dehydrogenase and NADP-dependent glycerol phosphate dehydrogenase showed that the latter may be more important than the former in the production of glycerol during diapause in silkworm eggs.
