Figure 5

Effect of prodigiosin on mitochondrial transmembrane potential of epimastigotes of T. cruzi SN-3 strain. 1.5 × 106 parasites/mL were treated with rotenone, TTFA, antimycin A, KCN, or prodigiosin for 1 h. The parasites were then incubated with TMRM and analyzed with a cytometer. The uncoupler CCCP (100 μM) was used as positive control. *MIF: Medium intensity of fluorescence.
