Abstract Share this page

The aim of this work was to analyze the content of total protein and nitrogen degradation products in Biomphalaria glabrata infected with Schistosoma mansoni and exposed to Euphorbia splendens var. hislopii latex. The LC50 of this latex was 1.0 mg/l. Concentrations of uric acid, urea and total proteins were determined in the hemolymph of B. glabrata infected with five S. mansoni miracidia and exposed to a sublethal concentration of E. splendens var. hislopii latex for 24 h. The exposure to this molluscicide caused total depletion of the alterative sources of energy (total proteins) and significant variation in the nitrogen degradation products. The urea content increased while the uric acid level decreased. These results reflect a disturbance in the snails regulation of their metabolism due to intoxication caused by the latex exposure.
