Among apicomplexan parasites, the coccidia and Cryptosporidium spp. are important pathogens of livestock and humans, and the environmentally resistant stage (oocyst) is essential for their transmission. Little is known of the chemical and molecular composition of the oocyst wall. Currently, the only parasite molecules shown to be involved in oocyst wall formation are the tyrosine-rich proteins gam56, gam82 and gam230 of Eimeria spp. and the cysteine-rich proteins COWP1 and COWP8 of… CONTINUE READING
