For the first time, the potential immunomodulators prostaglandin E2 and γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) have been revealed in the plerocercoid Diphyllobothrium dendriticum, which is a parasite in the tissues and abdominal cavity of the Baikal omul Coregonus migratorius. The localization of immunomodulators in parasite tissues was compared with the location of typical markers of the nervous system (serotonin (5-HT) and FMRF-amide) and a marker of microtubules (α-tubulin). Prostaglandin E2 was… CONTINUE READING
