The activities of succinate-DCPIP oxidoreductase (SO) and NADH-fumarate oxidoreductase (FR) were determined in tissue homogenate of Biomphalaria alexandrina and Bulinus truncatus, the snail vectors of Schistosomiasia. A parallel study was done on Lymnea truncatula snails which are not susceptible to Schistosoma infection. The Michaelis constant (Km) and maximum velocities (Vmax) for fumarate reduction and succinate oxidation by the tissue homogenates from the three species were determined. The results obtained showed that both susceptible species are aerobic and lactate is the sole end product of anaerobic glycolysis. Lymnea truncatula snails are facultative anaerobic producing succinate as a major end product in the glycolytic pathway.
