Toxoplasma gondii rhoptry discharge correlates with activation of the early growth response 2 host cell transcription factor.

Abstract

Toxoplasma gondii is a ubiquitous apicomplexan parasite that can cause severe disease in fetuses and immune-compromised patients. Rhoptries, micronemes, and dense granules, which are secretory organelles unique to Toxoplasma and other apicomplexan parasites, play critical roles in parasite growth and virulence. To understand how these organelles modulate… (More)
