Comparative effects of schistosome infection and starvation on the respiratory transport chain of the snails Biomphalaria alexandrina and Bulinus truncatus
Abstract 1. 1. The activity of succinate oxidase, NADH oxidase, Succinate—methylene blue reductases and Cytochrome oxidasa was determined. 2. 2. The rate of oxidation of these enzymes was higher inExpand
