Abstract

The observation that differentiation of parasite life cycle stages involves structural and functional reorganisation is very familiar. A recent paper by Besteiro and colleagues provides an intriguing insight into cellular remodelling during differentiation. They show that it is essential for Leishmania to tidy up and put the house in order before it can differentiate to mammal-infective stages.
