    Codon choice directs constitutive mRNA levels in trypanosomes

    Janaina de Freitas Nascimento et al.
    The information for mRNAs expression level is set by codon choice in trypanosomes and requires translation to be interpreted into a turnover rate.

    Structural basis for ligand and innate immunity factor uptake by the trypanosome haptoglobin-haemoglobin receptor

    Harriet Lane-Serff et al.
    The structure of the trypanosome haptoglobin-haemoglobin receptor bound to its ligand reveals the molecular basis for ligand recognition in innate immunity and identifies molecular determinants that aid efficient uptake.

    Mapping replication dynamics in Trypanosoma brucei reveals a link with telomere transcription and antigenic variation

    Rebecca Devlin et al.
    Mapping DNA replication timing, allied to genetic analysis of a RecQ repair helicase, reveals that antigenic variation in the African trypanosome may be initiated by locus-specific, replication-derived sequence instability.

    The skin is a significant but overlooked anatomical reservoir for vector-borne African trypanosomes

    Paul Capewell et al.
    African trypanosomes residing within the skin of infected humans represent an important yet overlooked transmissible parasite population that may thwart efforts to eliminate African sleeping sickness.

    Developmental adaptations of trypanosome motility to the tsetse fly host environments unravel a multifaceted in vivo microswimmer system

    Sarah Schuster et al.
    Trypanosome development within the transmitting tsetse fly reveals essential adaptations of microbial motility to diverse physical microenvironments.

    Positively selected modifications in the pore of TbAQP2 allow pentamidine to enter Trypanosoma brucei

    Ali H Alghamdi et al.
    Study of TbAQP2 adaptations and substrate interactions shows how this aquaglyceroporin enables cellular entry of large antimicrobial agents in Trypanosoma brucei.

    Evolutionary diversification of the trypanosome haptoglobin-haemoglobin receptor from an ancestral haemoglobin receptor

    Harriet Lane-Serff et al.
    The ligand specificity and expression profile of the haptoglobin-haemoglobin receptor has diversified throughout the evolution of trypanosomes.

    A tryparedoxin-coupled biosensor reveals a mitochondrial trypanothione metabolism in trypanosomes

    Samantha Ebersoll et al.
    African trypanosomes have a trypanothione-based mitochondrial thiol redox metabolism.

    Visualizing trypanosomes in a vertebrate host reveals novel swimming behaviours, adaptations and attachment mechanisms

    Éva Dóró et al.
    The transparent zebrafish reveals the reality of trypanosomes swimming in a vertebrate host, and their adaptations to an extremely heterogenic environment.

    Tryparedoxin peroxidase-deficiency commits trypanosomes to ferroptosis-type cell death

    Marta Bogacz, R Luise Krauth-Siegel
    Ferroptosis is an evolutionary ancient process that is counterbalanced by distant peroxidases, GPx4 in mammals and tryparedoxin peroxidases in trypanosomes, and can be induced at distinct subcellular membranes depending on the individual cell type.
