Protein content of various developmental stages of three strains of the pink bollworm,Pectinophora gossypiella

  • A. K. Raina


Comparison of the total body protein of male and female larvae, pupae, and adults of a diapause and 2 nondiapause strains of the pink bollwormPectinophora gossypiella indicated that the protein content of larvae of the diapause strains was significantly higher than of the non-diapause strain.
