Schistosoma mansoni : use of a fluorescent indicator to detect nitric oxide and related species in living parasites
Nitric oxide (NO) is synthesized enzymatically by nitric oxide synthase (NOS). Several groups have previously presented evidence for NOS activity and immunoreactivity in several parasitic platyhelminths, including ...
Voltage-gated calcium channel subunits from platyhelminths : potential role in praziquantel action
Voltage-gated calcium (Ca2+) channels provide the pathway for Ca2+ influxes that underlie Ca2+-dependent responses in muscles, nerves, and other excitable cells. They are also targets of a wide variety of drugs and toxins. ...
