SYNOPSIS The insectivorous bug Zelus leucogrammus (Perty, 1834) (Hemiptera, Reduviidae) was found to harbor several species of trypanosomatids of the genera Leptomonas, Crithidia, Herpetomonas and Blastocrithidia. However, laboratory bred nymphs given sterile food were infected only by Blastocrithidia, the other flagellates appearing in their intestinal tract when they were fed on other insects. The Blastocrithidia was thought to belong to a single species and to be a parasite proper… Expand
Transmission and ecology of trypanosomatid flagellates of water striders (Hemiptera: Gerridae).
TLDR
The results indicate that the infections of monogenetic trypanosomatids are maintained in hibernating bugs over winter and are discussed in relation to the ecology and behaviour of Gerris. Expand
Life cycle of Blastocrithidia papi sp. n. (Kinetoplastea, Trypanosomatidae) in Pyrrhocoris apterus (Hemiptera, Pyrrhocoridae).
TLDR
It is argued that the parasite exploits transmission mechanisms intended for obligate bacterial symbionts of P. apterus, and the study of the flagellates' behavior in the host intestine revealed that they may attach both to microvilli of enterocytes using swollen flageLLar tip and to extracellular membranes layers using hemidesmosomes of flagella.

Phytomonas and other trypanosomatid parasites of plants and fruit.

TLDR
The development of a polymerase chain reaction coupled to SL3' hybridization has facilitated the detection of Phytomonas in plants, which can be identified by DNA hybridization with a specific probe complementary to a sequence of the mini-exon or spliced leader gene. Expand
Leptomonas costaricensis sp. n. (Kinetoplastea: Trypanosomatidae), a member of the novel phylogenetic group of insect trypanosomatids closely related to the genus Leishmania
TLDR
A flagellate isolated from the intestinal tract of a reduviid bug Ricolla simillima in Costa Rica was found to represent a new trypanosomatid species, and the novel phylogenetic clade representing the closest known relative of Leishmania was revealed. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of trypanosomatids parasitising true bugs (Insecta: Heteroptera) in sub-Saharan Africa.
TLDR
Finding the same typing units in hosts belonging to different heteropteran families and coming from different continents strongly indicates that the global diversity of the insect trypanosomatids is most likely lower than was predicted on the basis of the "one host-one parasite" paradigm. Expand
Two New Species of Trypanosomatid Parasites Isolated from Heteroptera in Costa Rica
TLDR
Two new trypanosomatid species isolated from the intestinal tract of heteropteran insect hosts were described based on molecular phylogenetic analyses of Spliced Leader (SL) RNA gene repeats, glycosomal glyceraldehyde phosphate dehydrogenase, and small subunit ribosomal RNA genes, as well as by morphology. Expand
Cannibalism and coprophagy are modes of transmission of Blastocrithidia triatomae (Trypanosomatidae) between triatomines.
TLDR
B. triatomae was transmitted directly between triatomines by cannibalism and coprophagy, and the efficiency of transmission was not influenced by the blood source--mice or chickens--fed to the infected donor bugs although chicken blood lyses the epimastigotes of the stomach population. Expand
Genetic Diversity and Phylogenetic Relationships of Coevolving Symbiont-Harboring Insect Trypanosomatids, and Their Neotropical Dispersal by Invader African Blowflies (Calliphoridae)
TLDR
The absence of correlation between parasite diversity and geographic and genetic distances, with identical genotypes of A. deanei found in the Neotropic and Afrotropic, is consistent with disjunct distribution due to the recent human-mediated transoceanic dispersal of Angomonas by Chrysomya. Expand
Host-specificity of Monoxenous Trypanosomatids: Statistical Analysis of the Distribution and Transmission Patterns of the Parasites from Neotropical Heteroptera.
TLDR
Results show that the specificity of trypanosomatid-heteropteran associations is not very strict: parasites seem to be transmissible between different host groups within the same niche and predatory hosts may acquire parasites from their prey. Expand
Developmental stages of Trypanosoma (Megatrypanum) freitasi Rego, Magalhães & Siqueira, 1957 in the opossum Didelphis marsupialis (Marsupialia, Didelphidae).
TLDR
Developmental stages of the trypanosome in its mammalian host, especially the dividing epimastigotes, multinucleate plasmodial forms and rosettes found in the lumen of the scent glands of a naturally infected Didelphis marsupialis are described and illustrated. Expand

Experimental infection of Triatoma infestans and Rhodnius prolixus with Trypanosomatidae of the genera Crithidia and Blastocrithidia.
TLDR
It would appear that the necessity is increased for field workers in trypanosomiasis and leishmaniasis areas of the world to become well acquainted with the infective potentialities of the insect trypanOSomatids of their areas for the vectors of Trypanosoma and Leishmania. Expand
Growth and Reproduction of Leptomonas oncopelti in the Milkweed Bug, Oncopeltus fasciatus
TLDR
A laboratory colony of Oncopeltus fasciatus was found to be infected with Leptomonas oncopelti and studies indicated that in the midgut of the insect there is a departure from binary fission to budding. Expand
Flagellate Parasites of the Fly, Phaenicia sericata (Meigen)*
TLDR
Two species of flagellate parasites, Herpetomonas muscarum and Crithidia luciliae have been isolated in pure culture from the fly, Phaenicia sericata, and laboratory-reared Musca domestica were infected with each of the species. Expand
LIFE-CYCLE OF TRYPANOSOMA CONORHINI. INFLUENCE OF TEMPERATURE AND OTHER FACTORS ON GROWTH AND MORPHOGENESIS.
TLDR
It was found that the in vitro reversion of the bloodstream trypanosome into crithidia, such as occurs in the invertebrate host and in the usual diphasic culture medium, is dependent on at least two factors: if incubated at 25–28° reversion did not occur in any of the liquid media tried, unless total blood was part of the inoculum or washed red blood cells were added to the media. Expand
LEPTOMONADS OF WILD-CAUGHT PANAMANIAN PHLEBOTOMUS: CULTURE AND ANIMAL INOCULATION.
TLDR
Cultures made from wild-caught Phlebotomus sandflies found to be naturally infected with leptomonad flagellates indicate that these infections are acquired through a blood meal from a mammalian host. Expand
Blastocrithidia triatomae n. sp. found in Triatoma infestans from Argentina.
TLDR
Cysts attached to the flagellum, a conspicuous characteristic of the new species, are described and shown in photomicrographs. Expand
Growth of an insect Trypanosomatid at 37 C in a defined medium.
SYNOPSIS. A defined medium for an insect trypanosomatid, “Leptomonas pessoai” (probably a member of the genus Herpetomonas) isolated from the reduviid Zelus leucogrammus, allows growth up to 37 C. NoExpand
Isolation, cloning and determination of biologic characteristics of five new species of Crithidia.

Thru the application of technics of serology, cultivation in acid and basic media, host specificity and reaction in foreign hosts, it was found that each isolate from a different insect host was a different species. Expand
The Feulgen reaction after hydrolysis at room temperature.
TLDR
The hydrochloric-acid-Schiif reaction has been valuable since Feulgen reported it in 1924 and appears to be as practical as hydrolysis in 1 N HCl at 60° for 4–6 minutes. Expand
