Phosphoglycerate kinase (PGK) is an enzyme that produces one ATP molecule in the glycolytic pathway. Clonorchis sinensis is largely dependent on glycolysis for energy production. We performed immunoelectron microscopy on adult C. sinensis by using mouse immune serum raised against recombinant C. sinensis PGK. A high density of gold particles was found in the microvilli of the intestinal epithelium and in lamellae of the sperm duct. PGK was common in the somatic cells of intra-uterine eggs and… CONTINUE READING
