Participation of host cell actin filaments during interaction of trypomastigote forms of Trypanosoma cruzi with host cells.


The involvement of actin filaments from the host cell on the process of invasion of trypomastigote forms of Trypanosma cruzi was analyzed in seven different cell lines. Prior incubation of all cell lines with cytochalasin D, under conditions which interfere with actin filaments, markedly inhibited parasite internalization and increased parasite attachment… (More)
