Evolution as we know from the time of Darwin C and Wallace AR moves in the direction of the survival of the fittest. With progressively greater understanding of biological systems and the microenvironment inside a cell, biological fitness at the molecular level has come to the fore. Evolution of metabolic regulation in parasites, as an adaptation to their respective environmental challenges is a case in point . Kinetoplastida’s intracellular organelle the glycosome that sequesters over a thousand proteins, is thought to have assisted in the metabolic adaptability and acquisition of parasitism .
