Schistosoma mansoni cercariae were incubated for 3-5h at 37 degrees C in various test solutions, and the rate and extent of conversion of the cercariae to schistosomula were determined. Criteria used to identify schistosomula included: (1) loss of cercarial tail, (2) viability of organisms in saline but not in water, (3) pre-acetabular gland evacuation and(More)
Chemoattraction studies were done with Schistosoma mansoni adults from mice. To test for attraction or repulsion, some worm pairs were separated mechanically and the individuals placed in polycarbonate chambers. Experiments were done at 37 C and chambers contained dialysis tube chimneys. In all cases, heterosexual attraction occurred when one worm, but not(More)
Schistosoma mansoni sporocysts originally derived from monomiracidially infected Biomphalaria glabrata snails were serially transplanted into the cephalopedal sinus of anesthetized snails by the microsurgical implantation of fragments of parasitized hepatopancreas and ovotestis. Three to six passages each of five male and five female clones were maintained(More)
