Enzymatic Assays and Enzyme Histochemistry of Tuta absoluta Feeding on Tomato Leaves
Authors:  Rim Hamza, José P. Beltrán and Luis A. Cañas, date: 09/05/2018, view: 428, Q&A: 0
Enzymes play a key role in insect-plant relationships. For a better understanding of these interactions, we analyzed Tuta absoluta digestive enzymes. Here, we describe a detailed protocol for the detection of trypsin and papain-like enzymes ...
