This natural mechanism of encystment
is a protective response on the parasite which was exposed to unconducive environment .
Behavior during encystment
and excystment as well as methods for extracting and desiccating these worms will be presented.
Water temperature during the encystment
period influences the length of time to excystment (Howard and Anson, 1922; Zale and Neves, 1982; Watters and O'Dee, 1999).
Effects of environmental factors on encystment
and excystment of podocysts of the common jellyfish.
of the brain and spinal cord is life threatening and the most common manifestation, accounting for about 60%-90% of all cases (1).
Dinoflagellate cyst morphology: an analysis based on laboratory observations of encystment
. In: Okaichi, T., D.
A role for a galactose lectin and ligands during encystment
castellanii, where encystment
was induced by raising NaCl concentration we observed, under phase microscopy, that as the trophozoites condensed in size and formed thickened cell walls they appeared to expel their particulate contents, including M.
Cysticercus cellulosae, the larval stage of Taenia solium, is an important pathogen, which causes neurocysticercosis or even death with the encystment
in the central nervous system (CNS).
Presumably, chemical cues signal whether a host is suitable for development or encystment
