Four types of gland cells--escape, head, praeacetabular and postacetabular--were demonstrated by histochemical methods in the cercaria of Orientobilharzia turkestanica. The secretion of the head gland contains proteins with cystine and phospholipids. It exhibits the acid phosphatase activity. The secretion of the escape glands contains proteins with cystine and cysteine and the secretion of the postacetabular gland cells proteins with cystine, cysteine and tyrosine, and neutral and acid… Expand
