Abstract: Arcelin, an anti-metabolic protein was purified from the seeds of wild bean, Lablab purpureus. The feeding assay containing arcelin at 5, 10 and 15 μg concentrations revealed no antifeedant effect against fifth instar larvae of S. litura. However, the enhanced activity of (α- and β-naphthyl esterases in the mid-gut samples of S. litura treated with arcelin suggests countermeasure against the toxic effect of arcelin.
