Toxoplasma gondii homologue of plasmodium apical membrane antigen 1 is involved in invasion of host cells.

Abstract

Proteins with constitutive or transient localization on the surface of Apicomplexa parasites are of particular interest for their potential role in the invasion of host cells. We describe the identification and characterization of TgAMA1, the Toxoplasma gondii homolog of the Plasmodium apical membrane antigen 1 (AMA1), which has been shown to elicit a… (More)
