Calcium and hydrogen ion concentrations in the parasitophorous vacuoles of epithelial cells infected with the microsporidian Encephalitozoon hellem.

Abstract

Microsporidia of the genus Encephalitozoon undergo merogony and sporogony in a parasitophorous vacuole within the host cell. Cultured green monkey kidney cells infected with Encephalitozoon hellem were loaded with the fluorescent dyes fura-2 or BCECF in order to measure intracellular concentrations of calcium and hydrogen ions respectively. Both the… (More)
