Abstract: 1. 1. The optimal pH of maltase of the house cricket was 5.6 and the optimal temperature was 40°C. The apparent activation energy was 5300 cal/mol 2. 2. The 50% inactivation time for maltase at 50°C was 69 min and the 50% inhibition concentration for mercuric chloride was 163μmole. 3. 3. Maltase was only produced by the caecal tissues but its highest activity was found in the foregut lumen and after 5 days of starvation, only 44.6% of the total maltase activity remained. © 1992.
