Abstract: 1. 1. The optimal pH of trehalase was 6.9; the optimal temperature was 45-50°C; Km was 2.51 x 10-3M. 2. 2. The half life at 48°C was 36 min; it was most stable at pH 6.9 at temperature 35-45°C. 3. 3. Various heavy metal compounds inhibit trehalase but MnCl2 had a slight stimulating effect. 4. 4. Thoracic muscles contained the largest amount of trehalase; a delayed response to starvation in trehalase production was noted. © 1987.
