Description: 

IAEA strain predicted peptide sequences, GpapI

Lives in the more humid areas of West Africa, from Senegal to Cameroon, then south along the coast to Angola. In West Africa it penetrates further to the north in Mali and Senegal, than it does in Nigeria. In the part of its distribution from Cameroon to Angola, it has a long common boundary with G. fuscipes, with which there is little overlap. Vector of Trypanosoma brucei gambiense in West Africa.

A proposal for tsetse fly (Glossina) genome projects

The Glossina (tsetse flies) are vectors of African trypanosomes, which are of medical and economic importance. 1.35 million DALYs are lost due to Human African Trypanosomiasis (HAT) and mortality related to HAT is ranked ninth out of 25 among the human infectious and parasitic diseases in Africa. Animal African Trypanosomiasis (AAT) causes approximately 3 million cattle deaths per year and farmers administer about 35 million doses of trypanocidal drugs at a cost of US$ 1-1.2 billion, resulting in total agricultural losses estimated at US$ 4.75 billion per year.
