Social motility in African trypanosomes: fact or model?

Philippe Bastin
Brice Rotureau

Abstract

African trypanosomes grown on agarose plates exhibit behaviours akin to social motility. This phenomenon has not been observed in vivo so far but recently turned out to be instrumental in the definition of two specific stages of the parasite cycle and as a tool to probe for trypanosome sensing functions.
