Effect of larval trematode infection on amp catabolism in the freshwater pulmonate snail lymnaea luteola



Effect of larval trematode infection on amp catabolism in the freshwater pulmonate snail lymnaea luteola



Journal of Invertebrate Pathology 52(2): 231-236



Activities of the AMP-catabolizing enzymes denosine phosphorylase, adenosine deaminase, and adenine deaminase and their alterations on larval trematode infection were observed in all the major tissues of Lymnaea luteola. No significant change was seen in the activity of adenosine phosphorylase. Though the activities of adenosine deaminase and adenine deaminase were elevated on infection, the former was significant only in mantle tissue and the latter was significant only in digestive gland tissue, and not in other tissues. Based on the enzyme activity ratios, it was found that there was a tendency for adenosine levels to rise in the infected digestive gland, while its levels decrease in other tissues. It is suggested that adenosine may be one of the larval trematode requirements met by the host snail.
