[Physiological and biochemical changes of the silkworm, Bombyx mori infected by Cordyceps militaris]
Acta Entomologica Sinica 46 (6), 674-678
Abstract: When the 5th instar larvae of the silkworm, Bombyx mori were infected by Cordyceps militaris conidiophore, the content of haemolymph carbohydrates, trehalose, protein and glyceride differently decreased, and the decrease of haemolymph glyceride was most obvious. The activity of haemolymph trehalase also decreased in infected silkworm. The activity of haemolymph SOD, POD and CAT were changed after the silkworm was infected. The activity of SOD increased most significantly in four days: from 441.841 U/mL to 601.255 U/mL.
