The paper describes an introductory characterization of antigenic stimulation of excretion-secretion products (ESP) of Gnathostoma binucleatum advanced third-stage larvae cultured in vitro and proteinases present in this products. Excretory and secretory proteins were obtained after 10 larvae were maintained in 5% CO(2) RPMI medium. The supernatant was(More)
Proteins from crude extracts of advanced third-stage larvae and adult Gnathostoma binucleatum nematode worms showed protein profiles in SDS-PAGE analysis similar to Echinococcus granulosus, Trichinella spiralis, Dipylidium caninum, Ancylostoma caninum, Ascaris lumbricoides and Toxocara canis. The immunoblot analysis of the human serum infected or suspected(More)
The egg and larval stages of Gnathostoma turgidum were examined using light microscopy. Fertilized uterine eggs are 65.97 long and 32.28 wide, oval, brownish, with two cap-like thickenings. The eggshell surface is covered with numerous irregularly shaped pits of various sizes and depths. A sheathed second-stage larva emerges from the egg, measures 178 × 9;(More)
Two female advanced third-stage larvae of Gnathostoma turgidum recovered from the liver of one naturally infected four-eyed opossum Philander opossum pallidus collected in Oaxaca, Mexico, were morphologically examined. Because of some characteristics, the larvae do not fit into the typical advanced third-stage. The body shows a size at least three times(More)
A new, monotypic genus of the interstitial marine cyclopoid copepod family Cyclopinidae G.O. Sars, 1913 is described from male and female specimens collected at Laguna de Términos, a large coastal lagoon system in the southern Gulf of Mexico. Mexiclopina campechana gen. et sp. n. cannot be adequately placed in any extant genus within the family. It differs(More)
The advanced third-stage larvae (AdvL3) of Gnathostoma lamothei was obtained from experimental hosts. Frogs Lithobates heckscheri and snakes Nerodia fasciata pictiventris were compatible hosts allowing optimal larval development. AdvL3 are 4,487.94 μm long, have two lateral cervical papillae between rows 10 and 16 and an excretory pore at row 23. The(More)
