Identification of Trypanosoma brucei components involved in trypanolysis by normal human serum. Lecordier L, Uzureau P, Tebabi P, Pérez-Morga D, Nolan D, Schumann Burkard G, Roditi I, Pays E. Mol Microbiol. 2014 Sep 2. doi: 10.1111/mmi.12783. (Featured cover)


False-colored scanning electron microscopy image of innate immune cells and the parasite Trypanosoma brucei (purple; length: 15 micrometers) in an infected mouse liver. The parasite is transmitted between mammalian hosts, including humans, by the bite of infected tsetse flies and is responsible for human sleeping sickness, a lethal disease that is a serious problem in Africa.
