Differential activities of enzymes. Activities of antimicrobial and detoxification enzymes following challenge with buffer (negative control, white bars), Sephadex beads (immune challenge, black bars) and Sephadex beads plus venom (immune suppression, patterned bars). The indicated tissues were prepared for enzyme assays at 1 h PI. Panel (A) shows PO activity, panel (B) shows lysozyme activity and panel (C) shows GST activity. The units of enzyme activities are defined in M&Ms. Values are means ± SD. Histogram bars annotated with the same letter are not significantly different for each tested tissue.
