Digestive enzyme complement of Liza parsia (Hamilton)

Palanisamy, K (1993) Digestive enzyme complement of Liza parsia (Hamilton). In: Second Indian Fisheries Forum, 27-31 May, 1990, Mangalore; India.



An attempt was made to survey various digestive enzymes present in different regions of the digestive tract of the mullet, Liza parsia. The crude enzyme extracts from the digestive tract could hydrolyse a wide range of carbohydrate substrates. Amylase and maltase were the major carbohydrases detected throughout the alimentary canal with higher in pyloric caecae and intestine. Cellulase was not detected. Trace of acid protease activity was detected in the cardiac stomach extracts. High alkaline protease activity was observed in the phyloric caecae, followed by anterior inte,tine. Trypsin and chymotrypsin were the major endoproteases. Carboxypeptidases were detected in trace amounts: leucine aminopeptidase was the important exopeptidase.
