- Gibson W, Backhouse T, Griffiths A. The human serum resistance associated gene is ubiquitous and conserved in Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense throughout East Africa. Infect Genet Evol. 2002;1:207-14 pubmed..These results are consistent with the hypothesis that new T.b. rhodesiense strains arise by genetic exchange among T. brucei ssp. spreading the SRA gene and thereby the trait for human serum resistance and human infectivity...
