Partial characterization of a tapeworm-secreted signal factor inducing sustained spike potentials in the smooth muscle of the rat small intestine.

Abstract

The rat tapeworm Hymenolepis diminuta alters the myoelectric activity of the small intestine. To determine if secreted factors from the tapeworm are responsible for these alterations of intestinal smooth muscle activity, tapeworm-conditioned medium (TCM) obtained from in vitro culture was infused via an indwelling cannula into the duodenum of an uninfected… (More)
