Abstract

In biochemistry, the study of biomolecules such as  proteins, glycogen and lipids, are very important in each and every organism. A cestode parasite absorbs all nutritive biomolecules from the body host. In the present study cestode parasites, infected intestine and non-infected intestine of the host are determined by biomolecules such as protein, glycogen, and lipid. The estimation of protein content in the cestode parasites and host intestinal tissue (infected and non-infected) were carried out by Lowry’s method [1], glycogen estimation by Kemp A. Vankits and Haljnimgem A.J.M., [2] and lipid estimation by Folch, J., Lees, M. and Sloane-Stanley, G. H., [3] method.  Results, after comparison between cestode parasites i.e. Moniezia Sp. and host intestine (non-infected and infected intestine of host Capra hircus(L) indicates that the protein and lipid concentration is lower whereas the glycogen concentration is higher in Moniezia Sp. as compare to host intestine.
