Abstract

Investigation on different developmental stages of Bombyx mori revealed that the total protein content of haemolymph was influenced significantly with the variation in temperature. The maximum level (33.81μg/mg) of total protein content was notice in the haemolymph of fifth instar larvae, reared at 26°C while the minimum level (10.86μg/mg) was recorded in the adults reared at 14°C.
