Pyruvate and citrate metabolism in the muscle tissue of Ascaris lumbricoides.
Z Parasitenkd. 1978 Jun 30; 55(3):223-7.ZP

Abstract

Aconitase and NAD linked isocitrate dehydrogenase were present in Ascaris lumbricoides muscle at only very low activities, whilst there were significant levels of citrate synthase, NADP linked isocitrate dehydrogenase, 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase and succinic thiokinase. Pyruvate dehydrogenase was present in A. lumbricoides muscle at levels comparable with mammalian tissues and results suggest that it is modulated via a phosphotransferase/phosphatase system. The tricarboxylic acid cycle intermediates, citrate, isocitrate and 2-oxoglutarate were all detected in freeze clamped muscle, but their steady state levels were considerably lower than those found in mammalian tissues.
