The parasite Trypanosoma rangeli develops in the intestinal tract of triatomines and, particularly in species of the genus Rhodnius, invades the hemolymph and salivary glands, where subsequent metacyclogenesis takes place. Many aspects of the interaction between T. rangeli and triatomines are still unclear, especially concerning the development of the parasite in the salivary glands and how the parasite interacts with the saliva. In this work, we describe new findings on the process of T… CONTINUE READING
