Within intermediate hosts (such as humans), the protozoan parasite Toxoplasma gondii has two life cycle stages: a rapidly replicating form called a tachyzoite and a slowly growing, quiescent form called a bradyzoite. Recently, molecular biology studies have shown that tachyzoites and bradyzoites express a number of homologs (ie. evolutionary related genes)expressed exclusively in one or the other stage. Here, Laura Knoll and John Boothroyd describe examples of how these stage-specific homologs… CONTINUE READING
