Effects of temperature and glucose concentration on glycogen synthesis in Ancylostoma caninum

, : Effects of temperature and glucose concentration on glycogen synthesis in Ancylostoma caninum. International Journal for Parasitology, 113: 197-199

The glycogen content of starved Ancylostoma caninum incubated in Krebs-Ringer bicarbonate, ox serum or dog serum, increased with increasing glucose concentrations. A maximum of worm glycogen content was reached at a much lower glucose concentration when dog serum was present than when it was absent. Studies on temperature effects on worms incubated at 27 and 37 deg C, in the presence and absence of dog serum, showed that for worms incubated in dog serum, a temperature coefficient of 3.31 was obtained. For worms incubated in Krebs-Ringer bicarbonate, the temperature coefficient was 0.88, thus showing that the uptake of glucose for glycogen synthesis was different when dog serum was absent from the incubating medium.
