Partial characterization of the adsorbed protein layer onDirofilaria immitis (Nematoda) cuticle


Electron microscopy coupled with ferritin-conjugated indirect immunolabeling was used to locate sites of adsorbed host protein on cuticular surfaces of the adult canine heartworm,Dirofilaria immitis. The epicuticle appeared as a trilaminated structure. At high magnifications, the outermost layer of this structure was resolved into a trilaminar layer, which… (More)
