In PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases, investigators from the H3Africa Consortium's TrypanoGEN Research Group describe an apolipoprotein-L1 (APOL1) gene variant that may protect against human African trypanosomiasis (HAT)-causing Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense infections. The team narrowed in on the proposed protective allele, known as G2, by genotyping markers in 17 suspicious genes in 70 HAT cases and 132 unaffected, T.
