Host-trypanosome interactions in Glossina

Host-trypanosome interactions in Glossina

Insect Science and its Application 1: 39-46

The factors effecting establishment of salivarian trypanosomes in Glossina are reviewed. Recent observations on host-parasite relationships are outlined in the trypanosome-Glossina system. These include, in Trypanosoma (Trypanozoon), the penetration of the peritrophic membrane, the infection of the mid-gut cells, the finding of cyst-like multinucleate forms in mid-gut cells, and the observations on haemocoele stages in laboratory and field studies.
