Abstract

The blood of Phormia regina Meig. has been shown to contain trehalose, trehalase, and a system which prevents hydrolysis of the substrate by the enzyme. Further investigation of the inhibitory system has resulted in the discovery of what appear to be at least two components: a large molecule, possibly proteinaceous in nature, and a metal ion. Consideration has been given to the role of this system in regulating trehalose breakdown in the insect.
