Incorporation of carbon from 14C-labelled precursors into major chemical fractions of Haemonchus contortus in vitro






Acta Veterinaria Hungarica 34(3-4): 183-187

Incorporation of carbon from 14C-labelled precursors into major chemical fractions of Haemonchus contortus in vitro

H. contortus adults were able to synthesize proteins, nucleic acids and carbohydrates from simple precursors (acetate, glucose, palmitic acid and carbon dioxide). Palmitic acid was the most efficient precursor of proteins, glucose of nucleic acids and acetate of carbohydrates. Incorporation of carbon from acetate and HCO3- into nucleic acids was insignificant. Incorporation of carbon into proteins and carbohydrates indicated the presence of the tricarboxylic acid cycle.
