The aim of this study was to reevaluate the ecology of an area in the Atlantic Forest, southeast Brazil, where Chagas disease (CD) has been found to occur. In a previous study, immediately after the occurrence of a CD case, we did not observe any sylvatic small mammals or dogs with Trypanosoma cruzi cruzi infections, but Triatoma vitticeps presented high T. c. cruzi infection rates. In this study, we investigated bats together with non-volant mammals, dogs, and triatomines to explore other… Expand
Isolation and characterization of trypanosomatids, including Crithidia mellificae, in bats from the Atlantic Forest of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
TLDR
Surprisingly, Crithidia mellificae, a putative monoxenous parasite from insects, infecting a vertebrate host in the Americas is described for the first time. Expand
Trypanosoma cruzi-infected triatomines and rodents co-occur in a coastal island of northern Chile
TLDR
It is shown for the first time in Chile the occurrence of insular rodents infected with T.cruzi, and a complete T. cruzi life cycle in a coastal island, which provides new insights to understand the T. Cruzi infection in the wild cycle. Expand
Trypanosoma Found in Synanthropic Mammals from Urban Forests of Paraná, Southern Brazil.
TLDR
This is the first record of the encounter in wild mammals of Trypanosoma DNA, and an isolate of the parasite genotyped as TcII is obtained by amplification of the cytochrome oxidase II gene by PCR, followed by restriction fragment length polymorphism with AluI, and confirmed by PCR of rDNA 24Sα.

Molecular characterization of Trypanosoma cruzi samples derived from Triatoma vitticeps and Panstrongylus geniculatus of the Atlantic rainforest, southeast Brazil
TLDR
Investigating the Trypanosoma cruzi discrete typing units harbored by triatomines in rural areas of Espírito Santo state, southeast Brazil observed T. cruzi DTU diversity in Tr. Expand
Trypanosoma rangeli Genetic, Mammalian Hosts, and Geographical Diversity from Five Brazilian Biomes
TLDR
The results obtained in this study highlighted both the mammalian host range and distribution of T. rangeli in Brazil: infection was observed in five new species (Procyon cancrivorous, Priodontes maximum, Alouatta belzebul, Sapajus libidinosus, and Trinomys dimidiatus), and transmission was observedin the Caatinga biome.

First report of the prevalence and genotype of Trypanosoma in bats in Yun nan Province, Southwestern China.
TLDR
The results showed that T.sp-Yunnan is the predominant genospecies in bats from southwestern China, the first report about Trypanosome species in bats in Yunnan Province, southwestern China. Expand
Wild and Domestic Canids and Their Interactions in the Transmission Cycles of Trypanosoma Cruzi and Leishmania spp. in an Area of the Brazilian Cerrado
TLDR
Wild and domestic canids infected by both parasites were detected sharing the same areas, pointing to a possible spillover of parasites among them. Expand
Trypanosoma madeirae sp. n.: A species of the clade T. cruzi associated with the neotropical common vampire bat Desmodus rotundus
TLDR
The description of a new species of bat trypanosome associated with vampire bats increases the repertoire oftrypanosomes infecting D. rotundus, currently comprised of Trypanosoma cruzi, T. cruzi marinkellei, TrypanOSoma dionisii, TryPanosoma rangeli, and Trypanoai, and T. madeirae. Expand
Trypanosoma cruzi transmission in the wild and its most important reservoir hosts in Brazil
TLDR
Each locality of T. cruzi infection of free ranging wild mammalian fauna in the five biomes of Brazil showed that each locality, may display distinct enzootiological and epidemiological scenarios that must be taken into account when it comes to establishing control and/or clarification campaigns of the local population.

TLDR
Serum prevalence among dogs suggests that they may be involved in the maintenance of the parasite in the peridomestic environment, in contrast to goats, which are not apparently of any epidemiological importance. Expand

TLDR

The generalist parasite Trypanosoma cruzi has two phylogenetic lineages associated almost exclusively with bats—Trypanosoma cruzi Tcbat and the subspecies T. c. marinkellei. We present newExpand
High Local Diversity of Trypanosoma in a Common Bat Species, and Implications for the Biogeography and Taxonomy of the T. cruzi Clade
TLDR
A survey of trypanosome parasites of the bat Artibeus jamaicensis from the Panamá Canal Zone, an important seed disperser, finds evidence for at least five independent colonization events of these parasites into the New World. Expand
Molecular characterization of trypanosomatid infections in wild howler monkeys (Alouatta caraya) in northeastern Argentina
TLDR
The results demonstrated the presence of T.cruzi and a species closely related to T. minasense in blood samples from free-ranging A. caraya, belonging to different T. cruzi DTUs circulating in these howler monkey populations, and could help evaluate the role of A.Caraya as a reservoir of T., cruzi in regions where Chagas disease is hyper-endemic and where the human-wildlife interface is increasing.

TLDR
The results demonstrate the complexity of the Trypanosoma cruzi reservoir system and its transmission strategies, indicating that there is considerably more to be learned regarding ecology of T. cruzi. Expand
