CommentTsetse flies harbor two symbiotic microorganisms in gut tissue.
Housed in differentiated host epithelial cells (bacteriocytes) that form the bacteriome organ.
Glossina brevipalpis Newstead colony is maintained in the insectary at Yale University Laboratory of Epidemiology and Public Health.
Bacteriome organs from adult tsetses were isolated by dissection.
