Among carbohydrate metabolizing enzymes, the activities of trehalase, amylase and invertase were significantly reduced after treatment with sub lethal dose of esfenvalerate as compared to control.
Quantification of trehalose in biological samples with a conidial trehalose in biological samples with a conidial trehalase from the thermophilic fungus Hudicolagrisea var.
The trehalase gene was also under positive regulation of XYR1 [35].
Released glucose and trehalose-containing supernatants were added to 0.05 units of trehalase. After 1 hr of enzymatic reaction at 37[degrees]C, the reaction suspension was mixed with water and 16% DNS reagent (3,5-dinitrosalicylic acid 1%, NaOH 2%, sodium potassium tartrate 20%) was added.
These components included carbohydrate, glycerol, soluble protein, esterase and trehalase. Results showed that the total carbohydrate, glycogen and soluble protein contents were higher in the white cysts than in the brown cyst, whereas the glycerol content was lower in the white cysts than in the brown cysts.
