A confocal microscopy-based atlas of tissue architecture in the tapeworm Hymenolepis diminuta.
TLDR
A toolkit to facilitate characterization of loss-of-function perturbations using H. diminuta will enable a greater understanding of fundamental tapeworm biology that may elucidate new therapeutic targets toward the eradication of these parasites. Expand
Cellular Composition of Parenchyma and Extracellular Matrix in Ontogenesis of Triaenophorus nodulosus (Cestoda)

TLDR
The cellular composition of parenchyma was studied in the ontogenesis of Triaenophorus nodulosus, and it was shown that the specialized parenchymal cells was absent, but it has been proposed that the parenChymal organization is based on all specialized cellular elements that do not lose their typical features. Expand
Fine tegumental structures of the bothriocephalidean cestode, Oncodiscus sauridae, an intestinal parasite of the lizardfish Saurida undosquamis in Suez Gulf, Egypt.
The brushtooth lizardfish was invading the Mediterranean Sea from the West Pacific through Suez Canal (Ben-Tuvia, 1966). The large scale saury is considered as one of the most prosperous colonizersExpand
The neuromuscular system of the sheep tapeworm Moniezia expansa.
TLDR
This work used fluorescently labelled phalloidin as a specific probe for filamentous actin to define the overall organisation of several distinct muscle systems in the cyclophyllidean Moniezia expansa, a intestinal parasite of sheep that maintains a complex neuromuscular system. Expand
Complex insight on microanatomy of larval “human broad tapeworm” Dibothriocephalus latus (Cestoda: Diphyllobothriidea)
TLDR
A well-developed glandular system and massive hook-shaped uncinate spinitriches are thus probably required for plerocercoids inhabiting fish hosts and also for their post-infection attachment in the human intestine. Expand
Region-specific regulation of stem cell-driven regeneration in tapeworms
TLDR
Using the rat intestinal tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta, it is found that regenerative potential is regionally limited to the neck, where head-dependent extrinsic signals create a permissive microenvironment for stem cell-driven regeneration. Expand
Analysis of classical neurotransmitter markers in tapeworms: Evidence for extensive loss of neurotransmitter pathways.
TLDR
The results indicate that tapeworms have lost the genes that are specifically required in other animals for synaptic signaling using the classical neurotransmitters dopamine, tyramine, octopamine, histamine and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). Expand
Region-specific regulation of stem cell-driven regeneration in tapeworms
TLDR
It is found that lethally irradiated tapeworms can be rescued from death when cells from both regeneration-competent and regeneration-incompetents regions are transplanted into the neck, and the persistence of regenerative ability over time requires signal(s) from the head. Expand
Evolutionary developmental biology (evo-devo) of cestodes.

  • 2017
TLDR
A panoramic view is given of classical aspects, methods and hypothesis of cestode development, together with recent advances in phylogenetics, genomics, culture methods, and comparative analysis of cESTode gene expression that should encourage the incorporation of these fascinating parasites into the first-line of evo-devo research. Expand
Muscle system in rediae and daughter sporocysts of several digeneans
TLDR
The findings suggest that data on the musculature of daughter parthenitae are important from an evolutionary perspective. Expand

A unicellular endocrine gland in cestodes.
TLDR
Glandular cell processes are frequently found in close proximity to muscular tissue, particularly in the suckers, suggesting a regulatory role in muscle modulation as a possible function. Expand

In order to elucidate the nature of the fibrous network present in Schistosoma mansoni tegument, adult worms were studied by light and electron microscopy. It was suggested that this network isExpand
The occurrence and distribution of 5-hydroxytryptamine in Hymenolepis diminuta and H. nana.
TLDR
The presence of 5-HT in Hymenolepis diminuta and H. nana was detected by 2 biochemical methods and as yellow fluorescence in a histochemical method, and it may be the opposing neuro-transmitter to acetylcholine. Expand
Effects of putative neurotransmitters on the motor activity of Spirometra mansonoides.
TLDR
5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), epinephrine, and dopamine strongly stimulated the motor activity of larval Spirometra mansonoides and paralyzed the worms. Expand

Neurosecretion by Exocytosis
TLDR
This chapter discusses the neurosecretion by exocytosis, a theory based on the selective staining of secretory substances within some neurons of the central nervous system that suggests that hormone and binding protein share a common precursor. Expand
Oxytalan, elaunin, and elastic fibers in the human skin.
TLDR
