Abstract

The filarial parasites Litomosoides carinii and Dipetalonema viteae both show transcuticular uptake of adenosine 3’, 5’-cyclic monophosphate but isoproterenol is taken up by D. viteae only. The importance of this difference is discussed from the point of view of metabolic regulation. Inhibition of uptake by lectins indicates the involvement of surface sugar moieties in the transport processes.
