  • Apicomplexa are intracellular parasites that cause important human diseases including malaria and toxoplasmosis. Following invasion of a host cell, Apicomplexa undergo a fascinatingly complex process of division. Apicomplexa proliferate by a unique mechanism that combines closed mitosis of the nucleus with de-novo formation of daughter cells. Mitosis occurs in the presence of a nuclear envelope and with little appreciable chromatin condensation. Nuclear division is not always followed by… CONTINUE READING
