Ultrastructural observations of collar spines and surrounding tissues associated with extension/retraction mechanisms of the spines were made onEchinostoma trivolvis recovered from ICR mice or golden hamsters. The spine consisted mainly of a homogeneous, crystalline structure of moderate to heavy electron density. The spine was surrounded by an outer layer of tegument-like material. Interstitial material was located between this outer layer and the surrounding tegument. Muscle bundles… CONTINUE READING
