Effects of insulin on metacestode glucose uptake. Uptake of C14-D-glucose by metacestode vesicles in the presence of 10 μM insulin alone,and insulin together with Na3VO4. Control was set to 1 and results were normalised against the control. (*) P values below 0.05, (**) very significant for P between 0.001 and 0.01, (***) extremely significant for P <0.001.
