 en A Short Review on the Morphology of Trypanosoma cruzi: from 1909 to 1999
Wanderley de Souza

Abstract

The morphology of Trypanosoma cruzi is reviewed since the initial description of Giemsa-stained preparations by Carlos Chagas until the most recent micrographs obtained with freeze-fracture techniques. Special emphasis is given to structures such as the cell surface, the flagellum, the kinetoplast, the reservosomes and the endocytic pathway, and the acidocalcisomes.

Keywords
