Muscle albumin proteins of males and females of Solenocera melantho were studied electrophoretically with water and Tris- HCl buffer at five concentrations (0.1M to 0.5M) against three marker proteins - Catalase (240 kDa), Bovine Serum Albumin (67 kDa) and Ovalbumin (14 kDa). Protein fractions of 3, 7, 5, 3, 4 & 3 protein fractions were observed in males with water, 0.1M, 0.2M, 0.3M, 0.4M and 0.5M-Tris HCl extractions respectively whereas in females 6 protein fractions with water, 6 with 0.1M, 4 with 0.2M, 5 with 0.3M, 4 fractions each with 0.4M and 0.5M Tris-HCl were resolved. The molecular weights of the albumin fractions ranged from 50.65kDa to 219.46 kDa in both sexes. Significant difference was observed between the sexes though there was some similarity in some of the band pattern.
