Organellar dynamics during the cell cycle of Toxoplasma gondii
The protozoan phylum Apicomplexa encompasses ∼5000 species of obligate intracellular parasites, including those responsible for malaria and toxoplasmosis. Rather than dividing by binary fission,Expand

Dynamics of Toxoplasma gondii Differentiation
ABSTRACT Parasite differentiation is commonly associated with transitions between complex life cycle stages and with long-term persistence in the host, and it is therefore critical for pathogenesis.Expand

The Motility of a Human Parasite, Toxoplasma gondii, Is Regulated by a Novel Lysine Methyltransferase
Protozoa in the phylum Apicomplexa are a large group of obligate intracellular parasites. Toxoplasma gondii and other apicomplexan parasites, such as Plasmodium falciparum, cause diseases byExpand

Multiple Functionally Redundant Signals Mediate Targeting to the Apicoplast in the Apicomplexan Parasite Toxoplasma gondii
ABSTRACT Most species of the protozoan phylum Apicomplexa harbor an endosymbiotic organelle—the apicoplast—acquired when an ancestral parasite engulfed a eukaryotic plastid-containing alga. SeveralExpand

Structure and developmental expression of Strongyloides stercoralis fktf-1, a proposed ortholog of daf-16 in Caenorhabditis elegans.
A forkhead transcription factor gene, fktf-1, which we propose to be orthologous to the Caenorhabditis elegans dauer-regulatory gene daf-16 has been discovered in the parasitic nematode StrongyloidesExpand

Isolation and characterization of TgVP1, a type I vacuolar H+-translocating pyrophosphatase from Toxoplasma gondii. The dynamics of its subcellular localization and the cellular effects of a
Here we report the isolation and characterization of a type I vacuolar-type H(+)-pyrophosphatase (V-PPase), TgVP1, from an apicomplexan, Toxoplasma gondii, a parasitic protist that is particularlyExpand

SNAIL SPEARS AND SCIMITARS: A CHARACTER ANALYSIS OF CONUS RADULAR TEETH
Knowledge of the attributes of the venom-injecting radular teeth of Conus can enhance understanding of the functional biology of feeding and the systematics of this large and taxonomically difficultExpand

Differential Localization of Alternatively Spliced Hypoxanthine-Xanthine-Guanine Phosphoribosyltransferase Isoforms in Toxoplasma gondii*
A unique feature of the Toxoplasma gondii purine salvage pathway is the expression of two isoforms of the hypoxanthine-xanthine-guanine phosophoribosyltransferase (HXGPRT) of the parasite encoded byExpand

Requirement of the single base insertion at the 3' end of the env-related gene of Friend spleen focus-forming virus for pathogenic activity and its effect on localization of the glycoprotein product
In order to obtain evidence for the essential role of the single base insertion occurring at the 3' end of the env-related gene of Friend spleen focus-forming virus (SFFV) encoding the leukemogenicExpand

A Novel GDP-dependent Pyruvate Kinase Isozyme from Toxoplasma gondii Localizes to Both the Apicoplast and the Mitochondrion*
We previously reported a cytosolic pyruvate kinase (EC 2.7.1.40) from Toxoplasma gondii (TgPyKI) that differs from most eukaryotic pyruvate kinases in being regulated by glucose 6-phosphate ratherExpand
