Abstract

[Extract] Hookworms are large, multicellular organisms which infect their host as an immature larva by penetrating the skin. They then migrate via the bloodstream to the lungs, break through the alveoli and migrate up the trachea to be swallowed, finally residing in the small intestine as adult worms. Adult hookworms are about 1 cm long and are voracious blood-feeders. Proteases present in the alimentary canal of the worm are pivotal to the digestion of blood proteins, notably hemoglobin, and of the key enzymes in this pathway is the focus of this chapter.
