Figure 5

Life cycle of Dm28c-luc strain in Rhodnius prolixus . In vivo (A) and ex vivo (B) evaluation, fourteen days after feeding, displayed the progression of infection. Instead of the crop region, bioluminescence is found in different regions along the intestine (B), corroborated by parasite evaluation in macerated digestive tract and quantified in a Neubauer chamber, as displayed in the images (B).
