  • Abstract Blood forms of T. rhodesiense were examined by thin-section electron microscopy after incubation in a ferritin-containing medium. The tracer material was observed to become localised especially within the invagination surrounding the base of the flagellum. Ferritin was demonstrable inside membrane-limited cytoplasmic organelles, interpreted as phagocytic vesicles. In some cells, the ingested ferritin had evidently escaped into the surrounding cytoplasm. The findings confirm that… CONTINUE READING
