Analysis of soluble Entamoeba histolytica antigen using enzyme-L inked electroimmunotransfer blots.

Folia Parasitologica 35[4] 309 (1988)

Soluble antigens of ten strains of E. histolytica were studied by sodium dodecylsulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) and enzyme-linked electroimmunotransfer blots (EITB). No relations of immune replicas to virulence, geographical origin and method of cultivation (xenic or axenic culture) were found. Antigens of all ten strains tested precipitated with anti-E. histolytica human serum in the area of 30-43 kD. Antigen of HK-9 strain created in this area a characteristic pattern with all sera containing the specific anti-E. histolytica antibodies and, therefore, EITB can be used for excluding false positive results in ELISA.

Action of praziquantel on calcium transport in Hymenolepis diminuta.

S Tayal, S Gupta, J C Katiyar, P Sagar

Folia Parasitologica 35[4] 329-334 (1988)

Effect of praziquantel on inward and outward Ca++ fluxes was investigated in Hymenolepis diminuta in glucose supplemented balanced electrolyte solution and under conditions of glucose/Mg++ deficiency. The 45Ca++ uptake in freshly isolated worms presented, generally, a biphasic kinetics. This comprised of an initial fast uptake phase, followed by a continued slower influx. The initial fast kinetics showed insensitivity to or slight stimulation by praziquantel depending on its concentration, and such stimulatory action was particularly prominent under Mg++ deficient condition (P less than 0.01). The subsequent slower 45Ca++ uptake was, however, markedly...

Ultrastructure of the excretory system of Brachylaimus aequans (Trematoda: Brachylaimoidea).

T N Soboleva, Z Zdárská, J Sterba, J Valkounová

Folia Parasitologica 35[4] 335 (1988)

The ultrastructure of the flame cell, excretory capillaries, ducts, collecting ducts, excretory bladder, and excretory pore of Brachylaimus aequans was studied 6-8 days p.i. The excretory ducts, collecting ducts and excretory bladder are provided with numerous lamellae on the luminal side. The cilia of lateral flames in the excretory ducts have a triated rootlet. The excretory pore is covered by a tegument identical with the body tegument. The syncytium of the excretory bladder is connected with the tegument of the excretory pore by means of a septate desmosome. No lipid or excretory corpuscles have been demonstrated in the excretory system.

The dynamics of eosinophilia in concurrent infections with Trichinella spiralis Owen, 1835 and Toxascaris leonina Linstow, 1909.

V Figallová, J Prokopic

Folia Parasitologica 35[4] 365-369 (1988)

The concurrent infection with larvae of Trichinella spiralis and eggs of Toxascaris leonina was studied under various conditions using 75 male white mice. The changes in content of eosinophilic leucocytes in the blood, as well as the total number and distribution of larvae of both parasites in different body tissues were demonstrated. The primary infection with Toxascaris leonina caused an increase in the number of eosinophilic leucocytes from day 4 p.i., whereas the infection with Trichinella spiralis larvae induced an increase only from day 7 p.i. An antagonism was observed between the two parasite species: the primary infection with T. leonina led...

The effect of tolypin in Tolypocladium niveum crude extract against mosquito and blackfly larvae in the laboratory.

Folia Parasitologica 35[4] 379-381 (1988)

The efficacy of tolypin against mosquito and blackfly larvae was studied under laboratory conditions. It was tested against Culex molestus, Aedes aegypti, Anopheles maculipennis, Simulium noelleri and Odagmia ornata. A concentration 0.1 mg/ml caused 100% mortality in all species tested and a concentration 0.001 mg/ml caused 100% mortality only in the two species of blackflies used within 24 hours.
