Chandlerella hawkingi, the filarial parasite of the Indian jungle crow (Corvus macrorhynchos Wagler) has been shown to utilize glucose to form mainly lactic acid. Eighty five to one hundred percent of glucose is aerobically converted into lactic acid and only 0.5% to pyruvic acid. The parasite possesses significant amounts of aldolase, triose phosphate dehydrogenase, enolase and lactate dehydrogenase activities. However, glucose-6-phosphate, 6-phosphogluconate and isocitrate dehydrogenases could not be detected in measurable amounts. From these results it is inferred that the parasite meets its energy requirement through the process of glycolysis.
