Abstract


Enzymes form integral part and play decisive role in biological metabolism and systems. The present studies delve on the role of enzymes viz., invertase, amylase, glucose oxidase and catalase in nectar-honey transformation during May 2011 to April 2012. Five stages in formation honey from nectar comprises floral nectar (fn), honey crop of foragers (hf), honey crop of house bees (hh), unsealed honey cells (uh) and sealed honey cells (sh). Invertase in fn and sh cells was minimum of (0.00ml) and maximum of (42.40 ml) respectively. Similarly amylase in the fn was least (0.00ml) and highest in sh (16.01 ml). Glucose oxidase in fn and sh cells was minimum of (0.00ml) and maximum of (6.68 ml) respectively. Correspondingly, catalase in the fn was least (0.00ml) and highest in sh (4.96 ml). The analysis of variance of invertase and amylase was significant at 1 % level (p
