The phylum Apicomplexa includes thousands of species of obligate intracellular parasites, many of which are significant human and/or animal pathogens. Parasites in this phylum replicate by assembling daughters within the mother, using a cytoskeletal and membranous scaffolding termed the inner membrane complex. Most apicomplexan parasites, including Plasmodium sp. (which cause malaria), package many daughters within a single mother during mitosis, whereas Toxoplasma gondii typically packages… CONTINUE READING
