The obligate intracellular protozoan parasite Toxoplasma gondii has been shown to protect different cell types from apoptosis induced by a variety of pro-apoptotic treatments. However, the precise cell biological mechanisms of this inhibition remained unknown. As shown in this study, apoptosis in human-derived HL-60 and U937 cells induced by treatment with(More)
The integrity of the host cell may represent an important prerequisite for the intracellular survival and development of obligate intracellular pathogens. In the present study, we investigated the influence of infections with the protozoan parasite Toxoplasma gondii on the rate of apoptosis in the human leukemia cell line HL-60. After infection with T.(More)
Within its intermediate host, such as man, the protozoan parasite Toxoplasma gondii interconverts between tachyzoites and bradyzoites. The replicative tachyzoite stage is thought to be responsible for acute/active infection and expresses immunodominant antigens thereby inducing a strong cellular immune response, which vice versa triggers the differentiation(More)
