Trypanosome/Trypanosoma vs Trypanosoma brucei[edit]

Please be careful when editing this page, there is an aweful lot of text not about trypanosoma but particular species, mostly Trypanosoma bruce. Make sure you put the information in the right page!

See below for moved text: - Zephyris Talk 18:26, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

This text is now available on the talk page of Trypanosoma brucei. - Zephyris Talk 19:04, 30 June 2010 (UTC)


Right now, each of the species pages is just a repeat of the corresponding description here. I don't think it's likely they will be expanded any time soon, except possibly for details of their diseases, which are already described on other pages. As such, I'm going to redirect them all here until new content is added. Please discuss if you have any objections. Josh

I am definitely planning on expanding them, but I can't do that if they aren't reverted to the original stubs. --McDogm 03:55, 11 July 2005 (UTC)

Factual accuracy[edit]

"Trypanosoma are found in the bloodstream of an infected human host, where they change the surface proteins at regular intervals. Trypanosoma is also found in the midgut and salivary gland of tsetse flies." - Is this universally true, in particular surface proteins and whether they are found in the tsetse fly?

"The kinetoplast is derived from endosymbiosis of a prokaryotic cell." - Is this refering to the endosymbiotic theory to the origin of the mitochondria? If so it should be reworded to reflect this.

New World v Old World[edit]

Is there a definitive division between African Tryps. like T.brucei and South American Tryps. like T.cruzi? Would it be possible to divide them up that way rather than listing such a long list? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:35, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

Trypanosoma antiquus[edit]

I have just finished and moved to live an article for Trypanosoma antiquus, the oldest species of the genus, described in 2005 from Dominican amber. Wordsmithing, proofreading and tweaking would be appreciated. --Kevmin (talk) 19:33, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
