Supplementary Movie File. Combined example videos of miracidia in spring water (control) or SB 203580 (1 μM in spring water) for 60 min, anisomycin (20 μM in spring water) for 30 min or 60 min, or revived after anisomycin treatment (60 min anisomycin followed by 20 min in SB 203580 (1 μM)). Miracidia swim speed is increased slightly by SB203580 and is attenuated after 30 min anisomycin treatment; swimming stops after 60 min in anisomycin and is revived following subsequent incubation in SB203580.
