Structure of the glial cells in the nervous system of parasitic and free-living flatworms
The ultrastructure of different types of glial cells and the peculiarities of myelinization of gigantic axons are described; immunoreactivity to the S100b protein is revealed and Comparative analysis of the glia structure of annelids and platods is given. Expand
Where are the sensory organs of Nybelinia surmenicola (Trypanorhyncha)? A comparative analysis with Parachristianella sp. and other trypanorhynchean cestodes
The sensory organs in tegument of two trypanorhynchean species—Nybelinia surmenicola (plerocercoid) and adult Parachristianella sp. (Cestoda, Trypanorhyncha)—were studied with the aim ofExpand
Prostaglandins E2 and D2-regulators of host immunity in the model parasite Diphyllobothrium dendriticum: An immunocytochemical and biochemical study.
Prostaglandins produced by D. dendriticum probably play a dual role: 1) PGE2 and PGD2 potentially modulate the fish antiparasitic immune response; 2) P GE2 is presumably necessary for proper development and function of the nervous system, andPGD2 can act as an antagonist against mediators causing muscle contraction.

Relationships between uterus and eggs in cestodes from different taxa, as revealed by scanning electron microscopy
The association between uterus and eggs appears as strong evidence of active trophic interaction (or matrotrophy) between the parent organism and developing eggs. Expand
The brain structure of selected trypanorhynch tapeworms
The brain architecture of Trypanorhyncha is compared with that of an early basal cestode taxon, that is, Diphyllobothriidea, and a hypothesis about the homology of the anterior brain lobes in order Trypanorscha is presented; the lateral lobes and median commissure are homologous brain structures within Eucestoda.

Fine structure and development of Triaenophorus nodulosus (Cestoda) during metamorphosis: a review
The primitive nature of the differentiation processes in T. nodulosus at the initial stages of tissue formation is confirmed and it is supposed that destruction of the primary cell populations is the result of apoptosis or genetically programmed suicide. Expand
Fine structure of the uteri in two hymenolepidid tapeworm Skrjabinacanthus diplocoronatus and Urocystis prolifer (Cestoda: Cyclophyllidea) parasitic in shrews that display different fecundity of the
Adult specimens of Skrjabinacanthus diplocoronatus and Urocystis prolifer were investigated by light and transmission electron microscopy, and data on the uterine organization in these species areExpand
Multiparametric Analysis of Tissue Spheroids Fabricated from Different Types of Cells.
A new decision procedure to apply for any cell type one starts to work with to prepare and typify tissue spheroids meeting high quality standards in biofabrication and drug discovery is suggested. Expand
