The effects of genetic exchange on variable antigen expression in Trypanosoma brucei






Parasitology 103 Pt 3: 379-386

The effects of genetic exchange on variable antigen expression in Trypanosoma brucei

The inheritance of variant surface antigens in T. brucei was determined by identifying variable antigen types (VATs) in each of 2 cloned parental stocks (STIB 247L and STIB 386AA) and then examining the presence and abundance of these VATs in hybrid progeny produced when these stocks undergo genetic exchange during co-transmission through tsetse flies.
