New approaches to studying the GPI biosynthesis pathway in T. brucei: uncovering the missing links

Zhe Ji
Trypanosoma brucei is a protozoan that causes Human African Trypanosomiasis and nagana in cattle. The bloodstream form (BSF) of T. brucei has a dense surface-coat of variant surface glycoprotein (VSG) that acts as the first line of defence against the host immune system while the main cell surface glycoproteins of the procyclic form (PCF) are the procyclins. VSGs and procyclins are attached to the cell membrane through glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchors. Despite its importance, the GPI...
