Inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES) was used to study element ions in whole bodies of uninfected Biomphalaria glabrata snails and those experimentally infected with larval Schistosoma mansoni trematodes. Infected snails were analysed 8 weeks post-infection. Cohort snails that were left uninfected were analysed at the same time(More)
The calcium carbonate concentrations in the shells of Helisoma trivolvis and Physa sp. naturally infected with larval trematodes and Biomphalaria glabrata experimentally infected with larval trematodes were analyzed quantitatively. The larval trematode-snail relationships studied were H. trivolvis infected with larval Echinostoma trivolvis and Physa sp.(More)
High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) was used to determine the effects of a patent Schistosoma mansoni infection on certain carboxylic acids in the digestive gland gonad complex (DGG) and hemolymph of Biomphalaria glabrata. An analysis of DGG samples was done using extraction with 50% Locke’s solution, cleanup of the extract by anion exchange solid(More)
Protonated 4,4'-diaminotriphenylmethyl cation, DATM, has been investigated as a colorimetric reagent for the determination of sulphur dioxide. The bisulphite addition compound with formaldehyde alkylates a primary arylamine group in the protonated reagent to re-establish resonance, and hence produces a colour that is proportional in intensity to the(More)
Graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry and ion chromatography were used to study the metallic ions in the digestive gland–gonad complex (DGG) of Cerithidea californica snails infected with the daughter rediae and cercariae of Euhaplorchis californiensis and in uninfected DGGs. Seven metals (calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, potassium, sodium, zinc)(More)
