Mast cell-mediated toxicity to schistosomula of Schistosoma mansoni: potentiation by exogenous peroxidase.


Mast cells, when incubated in vitro with hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and iodide, are cytotoxic to schistosomula of Schistosoma mansoni, as determined morphologically by dye exclusion, motility, and refractility and by transmission and scanning electron microscopy. When intact mast cells were incubated with schistosomula, mast cell degranulation with… (More)
