Table 5 Evidence of meiotic stages and gametes in salivary probes. Percentage (and number) of flies (Glossina pallidipes) with meiotic or gamete stages in their salivary probes. 1738G was fed to teneral flies and F1R1 fed to these flies 18 days later; developmental day for F1R1 is given in brackets in first column

From: Dynamics of gamete production and mating in the parasitic protist Trypanosoma brucei
