Abstract

Trypomastigotes of single-cell-isolate clones WA-250/1 and Esmereldo/2 were used to infect third-instar . The level of infection was directly proportional to the concentration of trypomastigotes present in the blood meal. The minimum infectious dose for was calculated as 5 organisms/ml. Clone WA-250/1 underwent epimastigote-to-metacylic trypomastigote transformation over the 30-day course of the experiments; clone Esmereldo/2 did not undergo transformation to metacylic trypomastigotes. These data extend our knowledge of the biological diversity of stocks.
