Use was made of seven FITC labelled lectins as tools to investigate the surface of Onchocerca lienalis larvae as they develop through to the infective third-stage in a natural vector, Simulium ornatum. The lectins were derived from Canavalia ensiformis (Con A), Lens culinaris (lentil), Triticum vulgaris (wheat germ), Arachis hypogaea (peanut), Helix pomatia, Phaseolus vulgaris (kidney bean) and Tetragonolobus purpureus (asparagus pea). Between 70 and 100 living parasites were examined for each… CONTINUE READING
