1) Heme protein was extracted from the water-soluble substance of hog ascaris muscle by ammonium sulfate fractionation but the presence of cytochrome c was not found. This negative result may be due to the small amount contained and not detected by this method. Hemoglobin-like substance was obtained in a fairly large amount by the extraction method.
2) The ascaris was thought to carry out semi-anaerobic energy metabolism in the host's intestinal tract and the normal motion of the ascaris was observed in the glass U-shaped tube in which the air was replaced with nitrogen. It was found that the ascaris showed motor excitation, convulsion, and paralysis due to kainic acid and dihydrokainic acid.
