Contribution to the knowledge of aerobic processes in Taenia crassiceps larvae (Zeder, 1800)



Contribution to the knowledge of aerobic processes in Taenia crassiceps larvae (Zeder, 1800)



Folia Parasitologica 33(4): 331-336



Respiration by homogenates and isolated mitochondria of T. crassiceps larvae was measured. Respiration was inhibited (by about 70%) by cyanide, indicating that an important part is played by the classical respiratory chain. When succinate was used as substrate, relatively low respiratory rates were obtained, mitochondria showing higher affinity to NADH. The respiratory rates remained above 50%, even at very low oxygen concentrations.
