Title:A Study of the Catalase Content of Codling Moth Larvae
Author(s):Spooner, Charles Stockman, 1885-
Subject(s):catalase content
Codling moth.
larvae
dormant period
Abstract:At the suggestion of Professor Shelford, a series of experiments was undertaken to test the hypothesis that the enzyme catalase might be a determining factor in the dormant period of codling-moth larvae. The method devised by Professor Burge ('16) was used with a few minor modifications in determining the catalase content of the larvae. This method consists in collecting and measuring the oxygen gas liberated from neutral hydrogen-peroxide by the catalase present in the crushed larvae.
