Acid phosphatase activity in microfilariae of Setaria labiato-papillosa and comparison with other blood microfilariae of dog and horse origin.

Abstract

Acid phosphatase activity was demonstrated in smears of Setaria labiato-papillosa microfilariae by the naphthol AS-TR-phosphate method. The staining was restricted to 3 distinct sites, corresponding to the excretory pore, the inner body and the anal pore. This staining pattern was compared with those of Dirofilaria immitis, Dirofilaria repens and a Setaria of horse origin.
