Generation, regulation and function of morphology in Leishmania and Trypanosoma

Abstract:

Little is known about the generation of Leishmania morphology and the function of morphology in trypanosomatids, despite every species having characteristic cell shapes and undergoing changes in morphology between life cycle stages. To address this I analysed morphogenesis of the cell body and flagellum through the cell cycle of the Leishmania insect (promastigote) life cycle stage using a novel method for determining cell cycle stage from cell size and DNA content. This ...
