Topics from this paper

Morphofunctional diversity of glycocalyx in tapeworms
TLDR
It has been demonstrated that tissue glycocalyx has the largest size and is characterized by higher morphological diversity as compared to that in intestinal forms, which may be explained by differences in the habitat conditions. Expand
A comparative in vitro study of antibody binding to different stages of the hookwormAncylostoma caninum
TLDR
Cryostat sections of adult worms showed, that it probably is not the cuticle itself that is antigenic, but that the specific reaction that is observed consisted of a layer, covering the cortex of the cuticles. Expand
Ultrastructure of Archigetes sieboldi (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea): relationship between progenesis, development and evolution.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that progenetic Archigetes sieboldi shares characteristics of both larval (progenetic) and adult stages and it is postulated that a similar process of progenesis may have played a major role in the early evolution of the Caryophyllidea by first appearing in a plerocercoid stage of an ancestral strobilate cestode from fish. Expand
A transmission electron microscopical study of the tegument of Maritrema feliui (Digenea: Microphallidae)
TLDR
The tegument of the microphallid digenean Maritrema feliui, examined by means of TEM, is described as a syncytial epithelium organised into two layers, which contains numerous mitochondria, disc-shaped granules frequently arranged in a rouleau, and several large, moderately electron-dense, membranous bodies. Expand
Topography and ultrastructure of the tegument of Deropristis inflata Molin, 1859 (Digenea: Deropristidae), a parasite of the European eel Anguilla anguilla (Osteichthyes: Anguillidae)
TLDR
The tegumental ultrastructure of the intestine fluke Deropristis inflata was studied using scanning and transmission electron microscopy and particular distributions of the sensory receptors were observed with a concentration on the anterior third of the body around the oral and ventral suckers. Expand
Topography and Ultrastructure of the Tegument of Bucephalus anguillae (Digenea: Bucephalidae), a Parasite of the European Eel Anguilla anguilla (Osteichthyen: Anguillidae)
TLDR
Ulastructural study revealed that the tegument of B. anguillae has a typical syncytial organization with a distal cytoplasm lying over a basal matrix and cytons below, allowing transit of secretory vesicles and granules. Expand
Ultrastructural studies of internuncial processes in the tegument of a cyclophyllid cestode Raillietina (Fuhrmannetta) echinobothrida, a parasite of country fowl Gallus domesticus
TLDR
Transmission electron microscopic observation reveals that the type, distribution, diameter, and overall characteristics of the IP along the zones of the strobila differ greatly. Expand
Ultrastructure of the tegument of Saccocoelioides godoyi
The tegument of adult Saccocoelioides godoyi Kohn & Froes, 1986 (Digenea: Haploporidae), specimens of which were collected from the intestine of the freshwater fish, Leporinus friderici (Bloch, 1794)Expand
Evolutionary Origin of Life Scenarios: Paradox of Plasma Membrane
The structural and functional properties of the cell surface (plasma) membrane (a.k.a. plasmalemma) relevant to evolutionary paradigms for biogenesis are reviewed. Such a partition would have beenExpand
Ultrastructural features of aporocotylid blood flukes: The tegument and sensory receptors of Sanguinicola inermis Plehn, 1905 from the pike Esox lucius, with a comparative analysis of their traits within the Neodermata
TLDR
This work represents the first ultrastructural study of the tegument of a freshwater teleost-infecting aporocotylid blood fluke and the first detailed observations of the surface sensory receptors of any aporopomorphy, and supports a unique, deep origin of aporOCotylids spines when compared to those of other digenean families.

Structre and function of parasite surface membranes—I. Mechanism of phlorizin inhibition of hexose transport by the cestode Hymenolepis diminuta
Abstract 1. 1. The plant glycoside phlorizin has been shown previously to inhibit the transport of glucose by Hymenolepis diminuta, though the mechanism was not resolved. The effect of phlorizin onExpand
Structure and function of parasite surface membranes. II. Concanavalin A adsorption by the cestode Hymenolepis diminuta and its effect on transport.
TLDR
It is suggested that the effect of Con A on the adsorption of various solutes is related to the spatial location of their transport loci relative to the binding sites for Con A in the tegument brush border. Expand
Brush border development in the tegument of the tapeworm, Spirometra mansonoides.
CHEMICAL CHARACTERIZATION OF THE ISOLATED CELL SURFACE OF AMOEBA
TLDR
Evidence is presented suggesting that the phosphate is associated with an unidentified nonreducing polyol in the cell surface material. Expand
Cytological studies on the absorptive surfaces of cestodes. VIII. Phosphohydrolase activity and cation adsorption in the tegument brush border of Hymenolepis diminuta.
TLDR
Investigation of the possible relationship between cation-binding capacities of the tegument plasma membrane and its surface phosphatase activity found evidence for common binding sites for these cations in their initial adsorption from the ambient medium. Expand
Glucose and sodium fluxes across the brush border of Hymenolepis diminuta (Cestoda).
When Hymenolepis diminuta was preincubated in Na+-free KRT (tris-maleate buffered Krebs-Ringer saline) for varying time intervals, followed by incubation in 14C-glucose in Na+-fee KRT, the influx ofExpand
Relation of nucleoside transport and surface phosphohydrolase activity in Hymenolepis diminuta.
TLDR
The present paper reports some experiments designed to determine whether nucleotides affect nucleosid transport, and to test the hypothesis that nucleotide hydrolysis may precede inhibition of nucleoside transport by nucleotide transport in H. diminuta, and found nucleOSide transport to be inhibited by nucleosides but not by purine or pyrimidine bases.

TLDR
Evidence is presented suggesting that a glycosphingolipid structure may be important in the binding of erythrocyte antigens to schistosomes and which, if any, human blood group antIGens are adsorbed onto the surfaces ofschistosomula in vitro. Expand
