Species of the trypanosomatid parasite genera Trypanosoma and Leishmania exhibit a particular range of cell shapes that are defined by their internal cytoskeletons. The cytoskeleton is characterized by a subpellicular corset of microtubules that are cross-linked to each other and to the plasma membrane. Trypanosomatid cells possess an extremely precise organization of microtubules and filaments, with some of their organelles, such as the mitochondria, kinetoplasts, basal bodies, and flagella… CONTINUE READING
