English Trypanosoma brucei is a unicellular eukaryote that causes the deadly human African trypanosomiasis (‘sleeping sickness’) in humans. The parasite has a complicated lifestyle, it developmentally changes aspects of its mitochondrial function as it alternates from forms in the tsetse fly to forms adapted for life in the human bloodstream.
