Enzymes of galactose utilization in the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta.

1. Crude enzyme preparations from Hymenolepis diminuta contained galactokinase, galactose 1-phosphate uridyl transferase and UDPgalactose 4-epimerase activity, although their specific activities were low. 2. Galactose 1-phosphate non-competitively inhibited galactose phosphorylation. This inhibition, together with the low specific activities of the enzymes in the pathway of galactose utilization, probably accounts for the inadequacy of galactose as a main nutritive carbohydrate for development of the worm.[1]
