  • A peptide, schistosomin, is present in haemolymph ofLymnaea stagnalis infected withTrichobilharzia ocellata. There are indications that schistosomin is produced by the central nervous system (CNS) of the snail. Schistomin inhibits the effects of the snail's gonadotropic hormones, e.g. calfluxin (CaFl). CaFl stimulates Ca2+ influx into the mitochondria of the albumen gland, as shown using the ultracytochemical potassium pyroantimonate precipitation technique. We investigated the question as to… CONTINUE READING
