Multilaminate vesicles were purified, from homogenised whole Schistosoma mansoni adults, by differential density centrifugation on sucrose gradients, following methods previously employed for isolating multilamellar bodies (MLB) from mammalian lung. Morphometric analysis, on electron micrographs, of the pelleted fraction revealed that the pellet contained at least 56% MLB (by volume of solid material). An apparent projection core was described in both fixed MLB from our fraction and in unfixed… CONTINUE READING
