 Title    Sclerotization of Insect Cuticle in a Cell-Free System  
 Abstract    Incubation o f deproteinized larval cuticle (chitin flakes) with purified arylphorin (calli-phorin) or larval haemolymph o f Calliphora vicina resulted in the formation o f a chitin-protein complex. Enzymatic oxidation o f N-ß-alanyldopam ine (N D A B) in the presence o f chitin flakes or the chitin-protein com plex, resulted in various degrees o f cross-linking o f N B A D -quinone formed with chitin. This study confirms the involvement o f arylphorin in the process o f quinone tanning o f insect cuticle.
