Insight into the mechanism of trypanosome lytic factor-1 killing of Trypanosoma brucei brucei.

Abstract

It has been known for almost a century that normal human serum can lyse the extracellular blood parasite Trypanosoma brucei brucei. This process is a result of a non-immune killing factor in human sera known as trypanosome lytic factor (TLF). In this work, we demonstrate that killing of T. b. brucei by trypanosome lytic factor-1 (TLF-1) in vitro is… (More)
