Abstract

It is a well known fact that crustacean yolk contains a considerable quantity of storage lipids to be utilized during embryogenesis. Esterases are the main hydrolytic enzymes responsible for converting complex storage lipids into easily utilizable glycerides and free fatty acids. Esterases exist as isozymes which could be characterized histochemically after separating them on polyacrylamide gel.
