PCF mutants with augmented endocytosis have no significant difference in tsetse midgut infectivity. Tsetse flies were infected with wild type procyclic cells (PCF WT) and mutant PCF parasites 5AWT, 5AQL and 5ASN that have augmented endocytosis. The relative number of PCF parasites colonizing the tsetse midgut in each case was recorded at four or five days post-infection. See main text for statistical analysis of this dataset; the number of flies dissected for each strain is indicated above the relevant bar.
