Virulent Toxoplasma gondii evade immunity-related GTPase-mediated parasite vacuole disruption within primed macrophages.

Abstract:

Cytokine-activated macrophages restrain the replication of intracellular parasites and disrupt the integrity of vacuolar pathogens. In this study, we show that inducible nitric oxide synthase and the immunity-related GTPase (IRG) family member Irgm3, respectively, are required for the ability of in vivo primed macrophages to restrain the growth of Toxoplasma gondii and to destroy the parasite's intracellular niche. Remarkably, virulent Type I strains of T. gondii evade IRG-dependent vacuolar ...
