AbstractEnzymatic activity of Aspartate transferase (AST), Alanine transferase (ALT), Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and Gluocose-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PH) were evaluated in lungs tissues and protoscoleces of cattle and sheep infectd with hydatid cysts of Echinococcus granulosus
The result showed that there was a significant increase in ALT and G-6-PH activity; decrease in AST and ALP activity, while there were no difference in LDG activity in sheep lungs infected with protoscoleces when compared with control group.
In case of cattle lungs, no significant differences of G-6-PH, ALP, LDH and ALT enzymes activity when compared with control group.
When both infected lungs of sheep and were compared in their enzymatic activity significant differences were noticed in ALT, G-6-PH and ALP but with not in LDH and AST.
The enzymes enzymatic activity of protocoleses itself when isolated from both sheep and cattle showed no differences in ALT, AST and G-6-PH as well as there was no increase in ALP or decrease in LDH in cattle compared with these in sheep.
From all above it could be concluded that sheep infected lungs with Echinococcus granulosus affected the enzymatic activity of ALT, AST, ALP and G-6-PH.
