Histochemical distribution and functional significance of acetyl and butyrylcholinesterases in the amphistome Gastrothylax crumenifer



Histochemical distribution and functional significance of acetyl and butyrylcholinesterases in the amphistome Gastrothylax crumenifer



Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Parasitology 3(1/2): 69-75



Both the syncytium and musculature of the tegument of G. crumenifer stained moderately and homogeneously for acetylcholinesterase (AChE); butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) was moderately strong only in the tegumental musculature. Subtegumentary cells stained moderately for both enzymes. The tegument lining the pouch was negative for both activities.
