Distribution of filipin-sterol complexes in the bloodstream form of Trypanosoma brucei gambiense.

Abstract

The polyene antibiotic, filipin, was used as a probe for demonstrating sterols in the plasma membrane of Trypanosoma brucei gambiense. Three different regions of the continuous plasma membrane over the cell body proper, flagellar pocket, and flagellum, were compared as to density and distribution of the filipin-sterol complexes by freeze-fracture method… (More)
