Toxoplasma gondii metacaspase 2 is an important factor that influences bradyzoite formation in the Pru strain.

Xingju Song, Mengyang Lin, Muzi Li, Xu Yang, Jing Liu, Qun Liu,

Toxoplasma gondii is an important zoonotic protozoan of the phylum Apicomplexa that can infect nearly all warm-blooded animals. The parasite can exist as the interconvertible tachyzoite or bradyzoite forms, leading to acute or latent infection, respectively. No drug has been reported to penetrate the cyst wall and reduce bradyzoite survival ... Read more >>
