ABSTRACT : The optimal pH of midgut trehalase from CSR2 and Kolar gold (PM X CSR2) were 5.5 the 50% inactivation time for trehalase at 60°C were 3 min. in CSR2 and 10 min. in Kolar gold. The optimal temperature for both races was 50°C. The Km value for CSR2 was 10.57 × 10-3 M and for Kolar gold was 3.0 × 10-3 M.
