  • AbstractThe crude root-peel extract of Flemingia vestita, genistein and praziquantel were tested against some selected glycolytic enzymes—hexokinase (HK), phosphofructokinase (PFK), phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase (PEPCK), pyruvate kinase (PK), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), malate dehydrogenase (MDH) and malic enzyme (ME)—of the fowl tape worm, Raillietina echinobothrida. Following exposure to the various treatments, the activities of HK, PFK, PEPCK and LDH increased by 33–39%, 41–125%, 44–49… CONTINUE READING
