ABSTRACT
Midgut protease enzyme is one of the important enzyme that helps in converting the mulberry protein to silk protein in Bombyx mori L. As it is well established that midgut protease enzyme activity is correlated with the economic traits, the present study was undertaken to know the variability in the midgut protease activity and total protein content in the fifteen bivoltine breeds. In all the breeds, the midgut protease activity and total protein was rd th estimated during 3 day, 5 day of fifth instar larvae and pre pupal stage.
