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
Sommerville C (1981) A comparative study of the tissue response to invasion and encystment
by Stephanochasmus baccatus (Nicoli, 1907) (Digenea: Acanthocolpidae) in four species of flatfish.
Moravec & Kaiser (1995) reported encystment
by larvae of similar description in species of Eleutherodactylus collected in Dominica and Tobago, West Indies.
The most common drought-resistance mechanisms used by invertebrates include encystment
, temporarily burying themselves, making use of microvariations in humidity, migration to permanent water, the acquisition of winged adult forms, and the adaptation of reproductive periods to the most favorable times of year.
Differentiation during encystment
and excystment in Oxytricha fallax.
Cellular, biochemical, and molecular changes during encystment
of free-living amoebae.
Start of encystment
first occurred in the 250-L volume on the 7th day, with high illumination rates 184.
An experimental study on glochidia and the factors underlying encystment
See Smith and Persson (2004) for further details on the encystment
These metacercariae have been shown to be fully infective soon after encystment
In Trial 1 only one of six sauger infested survived the encystment
period in static 38 L aquaria.
