Cell invasion by the intracellular parasite Toxoplasma gondii occurs through an active process that involves dynamic events, such as gliding motility and conoid extrusion, followed by a sequential secretion from specialized secretory organelles. Increase of intracellular Ca(2+) by ionophores induces conoid extrusion, although in an irreversible way, thus limiting the characterization of the regulatory pathways. In this report we studied the effect of different activating conoid conditions to… CONTINUE READING
