A piezoelectric quartz crystal impedance technique has been applied for in situ monitoring of the whole process of the proteolytic enzyme-catalyzed hydrolyzation of casein and the effect of pesticide dimehypo (formula: C5H11NNa2O6S4) on the proteolytic enzyme activity in the midgut of the spider Pardosa pseudoannulata, based on its real-time reponses to the density-viscosity change of the tested solution due to the hydrolyzation occurring on the casein molecules. The results indicated that the hydrolyzation was significantly increased in the presence of low-dose dimehypo, where significantly inhibited in the presence of high-dose dimehypo, and a correlation was found precisely between the enzyme activity reflected by the final frequency shift after the hydrolyzation and the concentration of dimehypo, with a significant frequency response observed even at a 2.88 x 10-4 volume ratio of dimehypo to distilled water. The present work may have presented a novel method feasible for study on the mechanism of excitability of spiders under low-dose dimehypo pesticide and quick detection of proteolytic enzyme activity.
