Abstract: Quantitative studies of total salivary gland protein of Armigeres subalbatus mosquito revealed that the total salivary gland protein increased dramatically during the five days after emergence as adults. The amount of salivary gland protein of female and male mosquitos at day five after adult emergence were on the average 11.55 and 1.32 μg/pair gland respectively. SDS-PAGE studies showed that salivary gland protein profiles of Armigeres subalbatus demonstrated 9 major polypeptide bands of 68, 65, 60, 55, 40, 30, 28, 21, and 15 kDa. The 21 and 65 kDa bands were found only in the distal lateral region of the mosquito salivary gland and were depleted after the female mosquito took a blood meal.
