In vitro cultivation of digeneans would aid the development of effective treatments and studies of the biology of the parasites. The goal of this study was to optimize culture conditions for the trematode, Gynaecotyla adunca. Metacercariae of the parasite from fiddler crabs, Uca pugnax, excysted in trypsin, were incubated overnight to permit fertilization,(More)
The effect of incubation temperature on the frequency of sister chromatid exchange (SCE) has been studied in blood cultures from three Bloom's syndrome (BS) patients, three controls, and three BS heterozygotes. All cell types show slight increases of SCE at 39 degrees C while at 35 degrees C and 32 degrees C, SCE is reduced considerably in BS and slightly(More)
