Abstract

Toxoplasma gondii actively invades its host cell, enclosing itself within a vacuole that is a composite of the host cell plasmalemma and parasite organelle components elaborated during the invasion process. As a result, the parasite creates a new intracellular compartment that does not fuse with the endocytic system of the cell.
