Differentiation is a means by which unicellular parasites adapt to different environments. In some cases, the developmental program may be modulated by interactions with the host, but the mechanisms are largely unknown. Trypanosoma brucei is transmitted between mammals by tsetse flies. The development of the procyclic form in the tsetse midgut is marked by(More)
Our previous screening of a Glossina morsitans morsitans lamdagt11 salivary gland expression library with serum of a tsetse fly exposed rabbit identified a cDNA encoding Tsetse Antigen5 (TAg5, 28.9 kDa), a homologue of Antigen5 sting venom allergens. Recombinant TAg5 was produced in Sf9 cells in order to assess its immunogenic properties in humans. Plasma(More)
