Protease activities in the secreted saliva, salivary glands and midgut of the green mirid, Creontiades dilutus, were investigated. The saliva and salivary glands had more protease activity than the midgut, but no differences in protease activity levels were detected between male and female mirids, adult mirids and third instar nymphs, or between fed and starved mirids. In the salivary glands, chymotrypsin-like serine proteases predominated, as characterised by inhibitor specificity, basic pH...[Show more]
