  • The Microsporidia are a large diverse group of obligate, intracellular parasites. They are singlecelled eukaryotic microorganisms that have small genomes in the size range of prokaryotic cells and are now thought to be highly evolved fungi (Keeling and Fast 2002). They are exclusive parasites of other eukaryotes and possess a unique and highly specialized mechanism for invading host cells via infectious spores. Spores are the only stage that can exist outside a living host cell and they are the… CONTINUE READING
