Effect of gamma irradiation on the total nitrogen and protein content in body during different stages of silkworm development


, : Effect of gamma irradiation on the total nitrogen and protein content in body during different stages of silkworm development. Zhivotnov"dni Nauki 33(4): 68-71

An investigation was carried out aiming to determine the effect of gamma irradiation of eggs of silk moth in B-2 stage in doses of 1.00, 2.00 and 3.00 Gy on the changes of total nitrogen and protein content during the different instars of Bombyx mori L. development. Highest levels of total nitrogen and protein were found in silk gland, 14.032-14.355 mg%, followed by pupae - 7.4488.092 and 46.550-50.575 mg%, moths after egg laying - 6.650-7.825 and 41.563-48.906 mg%, and silkworm hemolymph - 6.920-6.980 and 43.250-43.625 mg%, respectively. The irradiation of eggs with 2.00 and 3.00 Gy gamma rays stimulated the content of total nitrogen and protein in silk gland by 6.66-7.37% compared to non-irradiated eggs of the same breed.
