Extracts of Litomosoides carinii, the cotton rat filarial parasite, possess significant activities of glycogen phosphorylase, phosphoglucomutase, phosphoglucoseisomerase, a nonspecific hexokinase acting on glucose, mannose, galactose and fructose, phosphofructokinase, aldolase, glyceraldehyde phosphate dehydrogenase, enolase, pyruvatekinase, lactate dehydrogenase, phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase, and malate dehydrogenase along with phosphatases acting on glucose-6-phosphate and fructose diphosphate. The results indicate the functioning of the glycolytic pathway in this worm which resembles Schistosoma mansoni, a lactic acid producer, in the differential activities of the terminal enzymes of the pathway.
