Journal of Sericultural and Entomological Science, volume 30, issue 1, 1988, Pages 1~7
Flower buds of the mulberry(Morus alba L., Morus bombycis Koidz.) were cultured under different conditions such as basal media, and various concentrations of plant growth substances. Effects of the culture conditions on growth of the buds and organ regeneration were investigated and the result obtained are as follows: Murashige and Skoog(M.S.) medium was more effective on budding and growth of female(Keomseolppong) and male(Kaeryangppong) flower buds isolated directly from branches, compared to Greshoff & Doy(G.D.) and Wolter & Skog(W.S.) media. The growth of the female buds was promoted at higher concetration of benzyl amino purine(BAP) i.e., 2.0ppm. The female and male buds cultured after cuuting for seven days showed better growth than those without cutting treatment. The females and the males bloomed to form healthy stigmas and anthers, respectively, when cultured on M.S. media containing high Kinetin with low concentration of indole acetic acid(IAA).

The objective of the present study was to investigate the behavioral responses of sillkworm (Bombyx mori) larvae to: the dominant effect of walking distace: and the relationships between walking distance and the various economic characters on yellow sheets. The means of walking distances of progeny from F2 and F1 F1 and F2 generations, which was a hybrid between the long and the short walking distances, were shorter than those of parents. This may indicate that the genes for the short walking distances were partially dominant over those for the longwalking. Estimated broad sense heritability of larval walking distance was different for each larval instar, which fell into the range of 52∼84%. Genetic correlation was apparent between walking distances of all larval stages and some economic characters. The number of cocoons per liter and the period from incubation to emergence have shown the positive genetic correlation with walking distances. The cocoon yield, the sing cocoon weight, and the cocoon shell weight have shown to be in the negative correlation with walking distances. No correlation was observed between walking distances of the mature larvae and any economic characters. The analysis by the path coefficient showed negative direct effect of walking distances on the cocoon yield, and positive indirect effect on the single cocoon weight and the cocoon shell weight.
Physiological and Biochemical Studies on the Adult Hemolymph proteins in Lepidoptera. 1. Appearance of Adult Specific Proteins in the Hemolymph of the Silkworm, Bombyx mori.
Journal of Sericultural and Entomological Science, volume 30, issue 1, 1988, Pages 20~24
Adult specific proteins, referred to as ASP-I(adult specific protein of slow mobility) and ASP-II(adult specific protein of slow mobility) at the pharate adult stage of the silkworm, Bombyx mori, were detected by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The adult specific proteins (ASP-I and ASP-II) were defined as a kind of adult hemolymph proteins without sex specificity, and the was no variation in the respective electrophoretic mobility of ASP-I and of ASP-II among the forty-one silkworm varieties. tested.
Study on the Juvenile Hormone Binding Protein in the Hemolymph of the Silkworm Larva, Bombyx mori.
Journal of Sericultural and Entomological Science, volume 30, issue 1, 1988, Pages 25~32
In order to examine a physiological role of juvenile(JH) binding proteins in the hemolymph of the silkworm larva, Bombyx mori, [3H] JH I incubated hemolymph was separated by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis in the fifth-instar larva and the activity of the binding protein was analyzed using charcoal binding assay. The results obtained were as follows; 1. The JH was bound by two protein fractions in the hemolymph of the fifth-instar larva; One was JH binding lipoprotein(JH-LP), the other was JH speific binding protein(JHBP). Their relative mobility values(Rm) were 0.3∼0.33 and 0.81∼0.84, respectively. There were no valid differences in those values from developmental stages of both male and female silkworms. 2. Total protein contents of the hemolymph were gradually increased during the fifth-instar larva, while at the prepupa decreased. The maximum ones were observed at the spinning period and the contents from female were much higher than those from the male. 3. JH binding activity per ml of the hemolymph was low in the early stage of the fifth-instar larva and its activity was maximized at the psinning period and at the prepupa slightly decreased. 4. There was a similar pattern between changes of the JH binding activity per ml of the hemolymph and of the total protein contents of the hemolymph. 5. The JH binding activity per mg of the hemolymph proteins was high in the early stage of the fifth-instar larva, while from the 6th day of the fifth-instar larva to the prepupa its activity showed the lowest levels.
Dissolution Behaviors of Sericin in Cocoon Shell on the Fluorescence Colors
Journal of Sericultural and Entomological Science, volume 30, issue 1, 1988, Pages 33~39
In the case of white cocoon, the fluorescence colors are classified as a yellowish fluorescence cocoon(Y.F.C.) and a violet fluorescence cocoon(V.F.C.) by exposing to ultra-violet ray. Accordingly, experiments were carried out to investigate the difference of sericin behaviors between Y.F.C. and V.F.C. by measuring the sericin solubility, surface tension and viscosity of the sericin solution. Also, the reelability of two different type of cocoons was investigated in the silk reeling process. The results were summarized as follows; 1. The sericin solubility of Y.F.C. shell is higher than that of V.F.C. shell with the dissolution temperature and time. It is shown that the sericin solubility curves of Y.F.c. and V.F.C. are similar in shape, but the difference of sericin solubility between Y.F.C. and V.F.C. is more significant at higher bath temperature. 2. The initial sericin dissolution curves of Y.F.C. and V.F.C. cocoon shell can be divided by four parts within the range of dissolving time from 5 minutes to 60 minutes. The initial dissolution velocity of Y.F.C. shell is faster than that of V.F.C. but the velocity difference is negligible after 30 minutes of dissolving time. 3. The gelation of V.F.C. sericin solution is faster than that of Y.F.C. at early stage(in the range of 15 minutes to 60 minutes). 4. In the silk reeling process, the reelability of Y.F.C. is better than that of V.F.C. with about 11%. This is mainly due to the higher sericin solubility in Y.F.C. followed by the fast dissolution velocity.
