Fig. 5

Trypanosoma copemani G2 and potoroo epithelial kidney (PtK2) cells incubated with propidium iodide (PI). Cell uptake of PI increases over time when exposed to G2 trypomastigotes: 8 h; 16 h; 24 h. Channels are split into differential interference contrast (DIC), PI, and both channels merged (Merge). See Additional file 1: Figure S1 and Additional file 4 for higher magnification figures and a live-cell time-lapse video. Scale-bar: 50 μm
