Histochemical localization of esterases in Avitellina lahorea Woodland, 1927 (Cestoda: Anoplocephalida)



Histochemical localization of esterases in Avitellina lahorea Woodland, 1927 (Cestoda: Anoplocephalida)



Journal of Helminthology 57(1): 39-41



Specific and non-specific esterases have been localized in sections and whole mounts of Avitellina lahorea, an intestinal parasite of sheep and goats. Non-specific esterases (NSE) were found in the sucker muscles, post-acetabular ganglia, nerve trunks, tegument, excretory canals, cirrus sac, vagina, uterus and the inner membrane of the embryophore. Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) was observed in all the above organs, including vas deferens and sperm ducts, but was absent from excretory canals and eggs. Tests with acetylthiocholine iodide (AThChI) revealed the nervous system, vas deferens, sperm ducts, uterus, cirrus sac and the vagina. The intensity of activity of AChE and AThChI was weak compared to NSE.
