Abstract: Crude extracts of the hepatopancreas from Armadillidium vulgare and Idothea resecata were investigated for hydrolytic activity using the following substrates: soluble starch, maltose, lactose, melibiose, cellobiose, sucrose, and sodium alginate. Activity with respect to starch, maltose, and sucrose was demonstrated. No activity for lactose, melibiose, cellobiose, or sodium alginate was detected.
