The effect of UA on E. granulosus germinal cells treated in vitro with UA. a Echinococcus granulosus EF-1α and mice GAPDH were used for the characterization of E. granulosus germinal cells (without host cell contamination). Lane 1: protoscoleces; Lanes 2 and 6: germinal cells; Lanes 3 and 5: mouse liver; Lanes 4 and 7: negative control. b The rate of germinal cell growth inhibition following treatment with UA in vitro. The data represent the mean ± standard deviation. c, d The ultrastructural changes of germinal cells cultured with 0.5% DMSO in vitro. e, f The ultrastructural changes of germinal cells treated with UA at 40 μg/ml for 3 days
