Lipase activity in Allodapa suctoria (nematode) and in Anonchotaenia gaugi (Cestode)
Author(s): MR Siva Sai Kumari
Abstract: Lipase which hydrolyses trigloycerides to diglycerides further to monoglycerides and finally to glycerol have been reported in helminth parasites. The lipase activity was demonstrated titremetrically in Anonchotaenia gaugi and Allodapa suctoria. The results obtained showed that lipase activity was present in both the helminth parasites and were comparable to the values reported by other workers on helminth parasites. The functional significance of lipase in helminth parasites have been discussed.
