Caption: Parasitic protozoan. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a trypanosome protozoan (Trypanosoma sp.). The nucleus (centre), cell membrane (outline, blue) and flagellae (upper left and bottom centre) are seen. Trypanosomes undergo part of their development in the blood of a vertebrate host. Two species, which are transmitted through the bites of tsetse flies, cause sleeping sickness (African trypanosomiasis). Another species, which is transmitted by reduviid insects, causes Chagas' disease. Both diseases may be fatal if not treated. Magnification unknown.
