In the bloodstream of a mammalian host, African trypanosomes are pleomorphic; the shorter, non-proliferative, stumpy forms arise from longer, proliferative, slender forms with differentiation occurring via a range of morphological intermediates. In order to investigate how the onset of morphological change is co-ordinated with exit from the cell cycle we first characterized slender form cell division. Outgrowth of the new flagellum was found to occur at a linear rate, so by using outgrowth of...Expand abstract
