Developmental cycles and biology of pathogenic trypanosomes.
Dans le cycle biologique de Trypanosoma brucei le changement le plus important se passe au niveau du systeme mitochondrial, en relation avec l'invasion des cellules hote and the resistance of l'hote. Expand
Novel cultured protists identify deep-branching environmental DNA clades of cercozoa: New Genera Tremula, Micrometopion, Minimassisteria, Nudifila, Peregrinia.
The phylogeny indicates that Filosa were ancestrally gliding flagellates; non-flagellate filose amoebae evolved from them five times independently; the new genera are more closely related to environmental DNA sequences than cultured organisms. Expand
An updated view of kinetoplastid phylogeny using environmental sequences and a closer outgroup: proposal for a new classification of the class Kinetoplastea.
A new classification of the class Kinetoplastea is proposed based on the results of the phylogenetic analysis presented, which supports the monophyly of groups that very often emerged as polyphyletic in the trees rooted using the traditional, distant outgroup sequences. Expand

It is suggested that the coat in bloodstream trypanosomes constitutes a replaceable surface which, after being replaced, enables thetrypanosome to escape the effects of host antibodies. Expand
Infection of the Norway lobster Nephrons norvegicus by a Hematodinium-iike species of dinoflagellate on the west coast of Scotland
Ch Chromosome morphology and ultrastructural features suggest that the parasite is a member of the botanical order Syndiniales, possibly related to Hematodinium perezi Chatton & Poisson 1931, but cells invading the haemal spaces show no signs of flagella. Expand
In vitro cultivation and developmental cycle in culture of a parasitic dinoflagellate (Hematodinium sp.) associated with mortality of the Norway lobster (Nephrops norvegicus) in British waters.
The parasitic dinoflagellate associated with mortality of the Norway lobster in British waters has been cultivated in vitro in 10% foetal calf serum in a balanced Nephrops saline. Expand
Polymorphism and Mitochondrial Activity In Sleeping Sickness Trypanosomes
The xenon positions in the two chains are different from one another, and not the same as in myoglobin, and a theoretical investigation by Kittel and Shore8 of xenon polarizability has shown that the quadrupolar (as well as the dipolar) polarization is particularly high, thus favouring binding in situations like this where one might not otherwise expect it.

Biology of African trypanosomes in the tsetse fly
Understanding the complexity of parasite development in the tsetse fly vector is especially challenging but may help to suggest new methods for the control of trypanosomiasis. Expand
