Differential apoptosis-like cell death in amastigote and trypomastigote forms from Trypanosoma cruzi-infected heart cells in vitro


Apoptosis, type-I of programmed cell death (PCD-I), is not restricted to multicellular organisms since many apoptotic features have been described in different trypanosomatids, including Trypanosoma cruzi. Our present aim was to monitor, by different morphological markers, the occurrence of apoptosis-like death in amastigotes and trypomastigotes of T.cruzi… (More)
