Gonadal lesions in virus-infected male and female tsetse, Glossina pallidipes (Diptera: Glossinidae).
Abstract Ovaries and testes, dissected out and collected from wild Glossina pallidipes with virus-infected, hypertrophied salivary glands, were processed for routine electron microscopy and examinedExpand

Detection of trypanosome infections in the saliva of tsetse flies and buffy-coat samples from antigenaemic but aparasitaemic cattle.
Relatively simple protocols employing non-radioactive DNA probes have been used for the detection of African trypanosomes in the blood of mammalian hosts and the saliva of live tsetse flies. InExpand

Prevalence of enlarged salivary glands in wild populations of Glossina pallidipes in Kenya, with a note on the ultrastructure of the affected organ.
Abstract Enlarged salivary gland was found to be widespread among wild populations of Glossina pallidipes in Kenya. The incidence of this abnormality varied from 0.9% in Meru National Park in CentralExpand
