The seed tissues can already be characterized as embryo, endosperm, and tegument
during the earliest stage analyzed (25 DAA).
12: cercarial body showing tegument
covered with large spines distributed in 9-10 transverse rows between anterior organ and ventral sucker; 13: cercarial body showing the penetration gland-cells.
Lateral margin and posterior to the ventral sucker, the tegument
showing submerged spines by the swollen tegument
around them Fig.
The major hallmarks of this atopic disease are xerosis, pruritus and chronic relapsing eczematous lesions of the teguments
The mouth opens subterminally on the ventral side (Figures 1-3) and having a lower lip-like structure, the tegument
of which forms an irregularly arranged series of many thick tegumental folds (Figure 4).
The major target for the development of new schistosomicidal drugs is the tegument
of Schistosoma, which is crucial for the parasite survival and its host immune defense (de Moraes et al.
05) with regard to their susceptibility towards the fungal extracts, and they were more affected than the tegument
Uncus bifurcated at base, 1/2 times as long as tegument
, each fork medium-long, slender at apex, broad at base; tegumen wide and arc-shaped, socii broad and wide, incurved at apex and strongly setose, shorter than uncus; gnathos degenerated; 1 pulvinus between tegument
and valva, finger-shaped protuberance at pulvini; valva clavate, wide and thick at base; cucullus thin and long, strongly sclerotized; juxta similar triangle-shaped; saccus medium-long and thin.
Body with linguiform shape, tegument
with spines, extending up to the end of intestinal caeca.
Since the hygroscopic behavior of powders differs from that of whole seeds in their smaller grain size and fragmented tegument
, they exhibit unique characteristics during the drying process.
Saran et al (8) proposed the use of fine-needle aspiration cytology, which identifies the tegument
layer of the larva, to help the clinician in planning the treatment.
As in other animals, fish do not have the capacity to biosynthesize carotenoids, but must modify dietary carotenoids and store them in tegument
and other tissues.
