Wigglesworthia might affect the immune responses of tsetse adult WT tsetse, after injection with E. coli, the age-matched involved in immune responses... They found that expression of these genes was However, when the flies were injected with E. coli, expression increased dramatically in WT flies compared to that adult Gmm had far fewer hemocytes than This was borne out by the drastically decreased expression in Gmm of two Drosophila... Together, these results show that Wigglesworthia must be present in their guts, Wigglesworthia and tsetse flies have coevolved to the Wigglesworthia–tsetse fly association is a great model system for studying the effect of symbionts on host immunity, because of the short

Female tsetse flies provide their intrauterine larvae with nourishmentand vertically transmitted symbionts, including obligateWigglesworthia. When this symbiont is absent, tsetseflies exhibit a highly compromised immune system.Image courtesy of Dr. Geoff Attardo.
