Apicomplexan parasites harbor a secondary plastid that is essential to their survival. Several metabolic pathways confined to this organelle have emerged as promising parasite-specific drug targets. The maintenance of the organelle and its genome is an equally valuable target. We have studied the replication and segregation of this important organelle using the parasite Sarcocystis neurona as a cell biological model. This model system makes it possible to differentiate and dissect organellar… CONTINUE READING
