Apicomplexans form a large group of obligate intracellular parasites that occupy diverse environmental niches. To adapt to their hosts, these parasites have evolved sophisticated strategies to access host-cell nutrients and minimize exposure to the host's defence mechanisms. Concomitantly, they have drastically reshaped their own metabolic functions by retaining, losing or gaining genes for metabolic enzymes. Although several Apicomplexans remain experimentally intractable, bioinformatic… CONTINUE READING
