Kinetic analyses of the membrane-bound alkaline phosphatase activity of hymenolepis diminuta (Cestoda: Cyclophyllidea) in relation to development of the tapeworm in the definitive host



Kinetic analyses of the membrane-bound alkaline phosphatase activity of hymenolepis diminuta (Cestoda: Cyclophyllidea) in relation to development of the tapeworm in the definitive host



Journal of Cellular Biochemistry 25(3): 131-137



The specific activities of the alkaline phosphatase (APase), type I phosphodiesterase and 5'-nucleotidase activities associated with the brush-border plasma membrane of H. diminuta decreased significantly as the tapeworm grew and matured. Kinetic analyses of the APase associated with membrane preparations from whole 6-, 12-, and 18-day-old H. diminuta and individual pieces of 18-day-old H. diminuta failed to demonstrate qualitative changes in the APase activity.
