Figure 5: ERK-like location in Taenia crassiceps by immunocytochemistry. (a) Transversal section of one T. crassiceps cysticercus where tegument, subtegument, and cells are observed with no staining. (b) Parasite cross-section incubated with FITC-conjugated goat anti-rabbit antibody, as staining control. Nonreacting cells are shown in red at 10 and 40. Unspecific detection of ERK-like was not observed during our experiments. (c) Specific detection of ERK-like (green fluorescent) was located in parasite cells mainly disposed along subtegument tissue, 40. (d) A magnification of 100 shows in detail the T. crassiceps cells expressing ERK-like exclusively on subtegument tissue. T Tegument tissue; St Subtegument tissue.
