• Qualitative and quantitative changes in lipids along the length of female reproductive system of the poultry nematodeAscaridia galli (Schrank 1788)

Qualitative and quantitative studies have been made of lipids along the length of the female reproductive system of the poultry nematode,Ascaridia galli. Adult specimens were collected in 0·9% saline from the intestines of naturally infected fowls. The quantitative studies have revealed significant (P=0·05) differences of total lipids, phospholipids, sterols, free fatty acids and glycerides and significantly (P&lt;0·001) higher amounts of non polar than polar lipids in different regions of the reproductive system. The qualitative studies have showed that the germinal, growth and maturation regions of the ovary, oviduct and uterus contained 7, 7, 6, 6, 10 fractions respectively of polar and 12, 12, 12, 11, 10 fractions respectively of non polar lipids.
