Excretions and secretions (E-S) were collected from a series of developmental stages of Litomosoides carinii maintained in vitro. Measurement of the protein content of E-S obtained from each stage indicates that the rate of production of E-S varies enormously during development of the worm. E-S was iodinated using both Iodogen and the Bolton and Hunter Reagent and was also biosynthetically labelled by incubating worms in the presence of [35S]methionine and [3H]leucine.
