Gonadal development and sexuality of Larkinia grandis (Arcida: Arcidae) inhabiting southeastern Gulf of California
The findings support the hypothesis that there is one male per female in the population studied and document that the shape, position and color of the gonads of L. grandis are consistent with observations in other Arcidae species. Expand


Changes in the reproductive biology of Biomphalaria glabrata experimentally infected with the nematode Angiostrongylus cantonensis.
The results indicate the occurrence of partial parasitic castration of B. glabrata by A. cantonensis larvae, probably in response to the depletion of energy reserves, with no injuries to the gonadal tissues. Expand
First record of molluscs naturally infected with Angiostrongylus cantonensis (Chen, 1935) (Nematoda: Metastrongylidae) in Brazil.
This is the first record of Brazilian molluscs infected with this nematode species, and larvae obtained from A. fulica snails, from São Vicente, state of São Paulo, also showed genetic profiles of this Nematode. Expand
Effects of infection by larvae of Angiostrongylus cantonensis (Nematoda, Metastrongylidae) on the metabolism of the experimental intermediate host Biomphalaria glabrata.
An increase in the protein metabolism of the infected snails, since there was an increase in nitrogen catabolites such as urea, suggesting that in this model the infection induces proteolysis and inversion of the excretion pattern of theinfected snails. Expand
Changes in the calcium metabolism of Biomphalaria glabrata experimentally infected with Angiostrongylus cantonensis.
Morphological changes in the digestive gland of infected snails were observed, confirming the role of this ion as an important element in the parasite encapsulation process. Expand
Carbohydrate metabolism in uninfected and trematode-infected snails Biomphalaria alexandrina and Bulinus truncatus.
Schistosome infection of the snails Biomphalaria alexandrina and Bulinus truncatus affected their citric acid cycle pathways, especially those concerned with succinic and cytochrome oxidases, and caused a marked decrease in the glycogen content of the tissues of both snail species. Expand
Activation of anaerobic metabolism in Biomphalaria glabrata (Mollusca: Gastropoda) experimentally infected by Angiostrongylus cantonensis (Nematoda, Metastrongylidae) by high-performance liquid chromatography.
There was a decrease in the glycogen content of the storage tissues, with that reduction being significantly greater in the cephalopedal mass than the digestive gland, demonstrating that in this interaction system, the mobilization of glycogen was not sufficient to maintain and reestablish the normal glycemia of the infected snails. Expand
Aerobic to anaerobic transition in Biomphalaria glabrata (Say, 1818) infected with different miracidial doses of Echinostoma paraensei (Lie and Basch, 1967) by high-performance liquid chromatography.
The infection by both miracidial doses resulted in an increase of oxalic and lactic acid levels, as well as in a decline of piruvic and succinic acid levels in B. glabrata, thus explaining the reduction of the oxidative decarboxylation rate in the tricarboxylic acid cycle and acceleration of the anaerobic degradation of carbohydrates in the snails, through lactic fermentation.

The giant African snail Achatina fulica as natural intermediate host of Angiostrongylus cantonensis in Pernambuco, northeast Brazil.
If A. fulica may act as intermediate host of A. cantonensis at the peridomiciliary areas of a patient's house from state of Pernambuco (PE), who was diagnosed with eosinophilic meningitis and a history of ingesting raw molluscs is assessed. Expand
First report of Angiostrongylus cantonensis (Nematoda: Metastrongylidae) in Achatina fulica (Mollusca: Gastropoda) from Southeast and South Brazil.
This report of A. cantonensis in South and Southeast Brazil, together with the recent report of the zoonosis and parasite-infected molluscs in Northeast Brazil, provide evidence of the wide distribution of the rat lungworm in the country. Expand
A comparative study of the organic acid content of the hemolymph of Schistosoma mansoni-resistant and susceptible strains of Biomphalaria glabrata.
The present work examines the profile of organic acids present in S. mansoni-resistant and -susceptible strains of B. glabrata to determine whether the type of organic acid present is related to susceptibility. Expand
