Electrophoretic analysis of proteases in Echinostoma Caproni and Echinostoma trivolvis.

Gelatin substrate sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis was used to analyze proteases in 14 day-old adults of Echinostoma caproni and Echinostoma trivolvis. At pH 8.0, E. caproni adults showed 2 protease bands at 36 kDa and 58 kDa, whereas E. trivolvis adults showed 6 bands at 39, 64, 77, 96, 120, and 168 kDa. Each species also showed distinct protease banding patterns in their excretory/secretory (E/S) products. The E. caproni E/S proteases were at 36 and 58 kDa, whereas those of E. trivolvis were at 120 and 168 kDa. Further characterization of E. caproni adult proteases revealed 2 bands (58 and 66 kDa) with optimal activity at pH 3.0-4.5 and 3 bands (38, 61, and 96 kDa) that were most active at pH 7.0-8. 0. Four low molecular weight bands (19, 21, 25, and 30 kDa) appeared when E. caproni worm extracts were incubated in the presence of CaCl2 at pH 8.0 but were inhibited with ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid and 1,10-phenanthroline. Echinostoma caproni protease bands at 58 and 38 kDa in the whole worm samples and the E/S products and the 36-kDa band in the whole worm samples were inhibited with phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride. By showing protease differences in addition to recent work on nucleotide differences, this study helps distinguish these 2 related allopatric species of 37-collar-spined Echinostoma.[1]
