Effects of Schistosoma mansoni on androgen regulated gene expression in the mouse.
Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis of liver mRNA translation products and dot-blot hybridization revealed that the levels of mRNA encoding major urinary proteins were greatly reduced in mice
Absorption of amino acids by Schistosoma mansoni.
TLDR
It was shown that these two amino acids enter Schistosoma via separate sites are partly sodium dependent and is inhibited by ouabain and phloridzin.
FINE STRUCTURE OF THE EYESPOT IN THE MIRACIDIUM OF PHILOPHTHALMUS MEGALURUS (CORT, 1914).

TLDR
This paper presents more fully the observations included in that part of the abstract concerned with fine structure of the eyespot and investigates the use of electron microscopy to investigate such receptors in larval trematodes.
Fine structure of photoreceptors in larval trematodes
TLDR
It seems that eyespots of miracidia have retained an ancestral pattern whereas the diversity of photoreceptors in cercariae reflects the varied phototactic behavior of those larvae which complete their life cycles by all the means known for cercarie with a free-swimming period.
Biomarkers Indicate Health Problems in Brown Bullheads from the Industrialized Schuylkill River, Philadelphia
TLDR
Assessment of health of two populations of brown bullheads Ameiurus nebulosus from an urban, industrialized section of the Schuylkill River, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the other from Hopkins Pond, in suburban New Jersey, revealed that both sites contained similar levels of polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons.
Fascioliasis: role of proline in bile duct hyperplasia.
TLDR
It is suggested that Fasciola hepatica, which synthesizes and releases large amounts of proline, induces enlargement of the bile duct by a similar mechanism to that produced in the early stages of fascioliasis.
Studies on membrane transport. VI. Absorption of amino acids by fascioliid trematodes.
TLDR
Absorption of cycloleucine, arginine, proline or methionine was a linear function of concentration and competitions were not demonstrable, but Efflux experiments indicated that cycloleUCine may be accumulated in an inner “compartment” in Fasciola.
Proline in fascioliasis: I. Comparative activities of ornithine-delta-transaminase and proline oxidase in Fasciola and in mammalian livers.
TLDR
The source was sought for the high levels of proline observed in the bile of animals infected with Fasciola hepatica and the activities of 2 key enzymes in the metabolism of proine were measured, suggesting the worm is the source of the excessive free proline.
Changes in amino acids of bile in Fasciola hepatica infections.
TLDR
Concentrations of seventeen amino acids in bile from cattle, rabbits and rats infected with Fasciola hepatica were compared with the concentrations from uninfected animals, and increases in total amino acids and proline were readily demonstrated at about the time the flukes enter the bile ducts.
Monosaccharide absorption by Schistosomamansoni—I. Kinetic characteristics
Abstract 1. 1. Absorption kinetics of fructose, galactose, glucosamine, glucose, ribose, β-methylglucoside, and 3-0-methylglucose were measured. 2. 2. All the above sugars except β-methylglucoside
