  • Abstract Autoradiographic and liquid scintillation counting studies indicate adults of Megalodiscus temperatus can absorb large amounts of thymidine and adenosine, but use little of the thymidine in in vitro exposures of up to 72 hr. Labeling of worms exposed to 3H-adenosine in periods as short as 3 hr was achieved especially over young eggs, testes, and the ovary. Large amounts of tyrosine are found in the free amino acid pool of this worm but little is incorporated into tissues for exposure… CONTINUE READING
