Quantitative differences in PC, PE and TG among developmental stages/sexes (A, B and C) and among adult organ systems (D, E and F) of Ascaris suum. The five developmental stages/sexes studied were: infective third-stage (L3-egg), lung stage L3 (L3-lung) and fourth-stage (L4) larvae; female (Af) and male adults (Am). The six adult organ systems studied were: the reproductive (FRT) and alimentary (FAT) tracts and body wall (FBW) of female adults; the reproductive (MRT) and alimentary (MAT) tracts and body wall (MBW) of male adults. Semi-quantitative analysis of lipid species, reported as the amount of lipid per mg of dry weight (μM/mg). Statistical analysis was performed by ANOVA (* P < 0.05). Error bars indicate ± SD (four replicates).
