Abstract The plerocercoids of S. solidus possess a complete sequence of glycolytic and tricarboxylic acid cycle enzymes. The presence of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase and fumarate reductase activity and the relatively low activities of aconitase and isocitrate dehydrogenase suggest that carbon dioxide fixation is an important pathway in this parasite. Carbon balances show that glycogen is the main energy source under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions and there is only a slight Pasteur… CONTINUE READING
