The effect of temperature and pH on the laccase activity in the hemolymph of B. glabrata (n = 70) and B. alexandrina (n = 70). Activity was measured as the amount of dopachrome formed from the oxidation of PPD in the hemolymph of both species, at the stated temperatures (a) and pH (b). Values are expressed as a percentage of the maximum activity, obtained at a 45 °C (a) and pH 8.5 (b)
