Setaria cervi, the filarial parasite inhabiting the Indian water buffalo (Bubalus bubalis Linn.) contained almost all the enzymes involved in glycogen degradation. Significant activities of glycogen phosphorylase, glucokinase, phosphoglucomutase, phosphoglucose isomerase, phosphofructokinase, FDP-aldolase, glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase,(More)
The microfilariae and adults ofSetaria cervi, a filarial parasite of Indian water-buffalo (Bubalus bubalis Linn.) and of other ruminants were analysed for various biochemical constituents. Both stages of the parasite were rich in protein, carbohydrate, and lipids while nucleic acids were detectable in only small amounts. Microfilariae and adults contained(More)
Microfilariae of bovine filarial parasiteSetaria cervi are equipped with the enzymes of glycolysis, pentose phosphate and PEP-succinate pathways and thus resemble the adult form in its metabolic pattern. Malate dehydrogenase was the most active enzyme in microfilariae followed by lactic dehydrogenase and fumarase, while phosphoglucoisomerase,(More)
Litomosoides carinii, the filarial parasite of cotton rat (Sigmodon hispidus), utilized labelled glucose and mannose for procuring energy while fructose and galactose were not helpful in this purpose. Studies on the fate of labelled glucose and mannose showed that these sugars led to the synthesis of glycogen.
