Alternative Development Strategies of Clinostomum chabaudi (Digenea) Metacercariae in Frog Hosts (Hyperolius spp.)
It is hypothesize that the presence of alternative development modes is an adaptation of C. chabaudi to cope with resource limitation within host-produced cysts.
Infection of Clinostomum complanatum (Treamdoda: Digenea) metacercaria in cultured southern top mouthed minnow Pseudorasbora parva
Many metacercariae in the musculature of southern top mouthed minnow (Pseudorasbora parva) cultured at a farm in Chonbuk Province were observed except necrosis and exfoliation of epidermis in the skin and atrophy of muscle fibers.
A report on various digenetic metacercariae from the freshwater fishes of River Godavari, Rajahmundry
The metacercarial fauna dominated the adult parasitic fauna of the freshwater fishes and contributed to the decline in the number of avian digenetic trematodes in the region.
Histopathological changes of the esophagus of the freshwater eels, Macrognathus aculeatus (Bl.) and Mastacembelus pancalus (Lac.) due to infection of metacercariae of Clinostomum mastacembeli Jaiswal, 1957
Histopathological changes included decrease in the lumen diameter of the oesophagus, atrophy and necrosis of epithelial cells of serosa layer, shrinkage of villi due to thickening of muscularis layer and formation of small vacuoles in the sub-mucosal layers.
Fine structure and permeability of the metacercarial cyst wall of Clinostomum marginatum (Digenea)
The selective permeability of the cyst wall permits free diffusion of glucose to the cutaneous transport systems of the worm, while restricting the movements of phlorizin and phloretin.
Histochemical characteristics of the metacercarial cyst wall of Gynaecotyla adunca
Abstract The cyst wall of the metacercaria of Gynaecotyla adunca (Microphallidae: Digenea) was subjected to comprehensive histochemical analysis. At the light microscope level, a uniformly thick,
In vitro Excystation of Metacercariae of Clinostomum complanatum (Rudolphi, 1819) (Digenea: Clinostomatidae)
In vitro excystation of metacercariae of Clinostomum complanatum (Rudolphi, 1819) was studied, and the rate of excy station was affected by the temperature and/or pH of the medium.
