Immediately after fertilization of the ovum, vigorous cell proliferation commences at the expense of the yolk reserves. The high titre of glycogen, observed both during the initial as well as the final stages of embryogenesis, suggests glycogen to be the main energy reserve which in combination with protein also participates in the chitinization of the newly hatched out larva. The close resemblance in the variation pattern of free sugar content to that of active phosphorylase activity is noteworthy.
The initial total protein concentration in
