A novel rhoptry protein in Toxoplasma gondii bradyzoites and merozoites.
The secretory organelles of Toxoplasma gondii orchestrate invasion of the host cell and establish the parasitophorous vacuole. Although much has been learned about the roles played by these organelles in invasion by the tachyzoite stage, little is known about the contents or functions of these organelles during bradyzoite development or pathogenesis. We identified a novel protein that localizes to the rhoptries of the bradyzoite stage, but is absent from the tachyzoite stage. This protein, BR...Expand abstract
