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.

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.
