Abstract Share this page

In cultures of tsetse proboscis stages during the development of Trypanosoma congolense, attached epimastigote forms multiply and give rise to free nondividing metacyclic trypanosomes. Prevention of attachment by shaking the cultures or by providing a polypropylene substratum does not inhibit epimastigote division but does prevent the differentiation of metacyclics. We conclude that epimastigote attachment forms a necessary part of the program of metacyclic development.
