Lipid and glycogen reserves were found to decrease when the adult Trichuris globulosa was to starve by incubation in vitro. Changes in acylglycerols (AG), non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA), cholesterol (Chol), phospholipids (PL) and glycogen were observed. A marginal depletion in phospholipids was observed while NEFA, AG, Chol and glycogen were rapidly depleted. Neutral glycolipids (cerebrosides) showed no significant change. The adult Trichuris globulosa was able to oxidize absorbed U-14C… CONTINUE READING
