Influence of 0.02 M EDTA and 3 M KCl on surface of Hymenolepis diminuta and composition of isolated proteins.


The glycocalyx of Hymenolepis diminuta (Cestoda, Cyclophyllidea) was isolated using 0.02 M EDTA or 3 M KCl. It was shown in the electron micrographs that 0.02 M EDTA did not damage the tapeworm plasma membrane, eliminating glycocylax only, in contrast to 3 M KCl which disrupted tegument up to the basal membrane. The protein analysis of extracts and the… (More)
