General Info

  • Relevance
    Toxoplasma is a crescent shaped sporozoan that lives as an intracellular parasite in various tissues of many vertebrates and completes its life cycle in a single host. Infection due to Toxoplasma gondii occurs in pregnant women where a variable degree of immunosuppression may exist or in patients receiving immunosuppressive drug therapy. The micronemal protein MIC3, which is a potent adhesin of Toxoplasma gondii, could be a significant candidate vaccine against toxoplasmosis.
