The in situ polymerase chain reaction (PCR) results revealed that mouse type A and type C retroviral sequences were transmitted horizontally from the host to schistosomes. The signals to these retroviral sequences were observed in the nuclei of the mesenchymal and reproductive cells of 8-week Schistosoma japonicum. These signals were also detected in the nuclei of the mesenchymal and reproductive cells and in the cytoplasm of the tegumental tubercles of 24-week S. mansoni. Furthermore, mouse… CONTINUE READING
