Genetics of resistance to African trypanosomes: role of the H-2 locus in determining resistance to infection with Trypanosoma rhodesiense.
Levine, R F
Susceptibility and resistance to Trypanosoma rhodesiense infections in inbred and H-2 congenic strains of mice were studied. Mean survival times and patterns of parasitemia were examined. C3HeB/FeJ mice were highly susceptible; CBA/J, A/J, and BALB/cByJ mice displayed an intermediate level of susceptibility; whereas C57BL/10 mice were highly resistant. H-2 congenic strains with the BL/10 background resembled the BL/10 parental type, thereby suggesting that the major histocompatibility complex does not play a major role in regulating resistance and susceptibility to infection with T. rhodesiense.
