The study of the expression of a Trypanosoma cruzi gene encoding a cytoplasmic repetitive antigen (CRA) during the metacyclogenesis process shows that this gene is not expressed in metacyclic trypomastigote forms of the parasite. However, a slight increase in CRA expression was observed following the nutritional stress of epimastigotes which precedes T… CONTINUE READING
