Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Protozoan parasites of the phylum Apicomplexa undergo a lytic cycle whereby a single zoite produced by the previous cycle has to encounter a host cell, invade it, multiply to differentiate into a new zoite generation and escape to resume a new cycle. At every step of this lytic cycle, the cytoskeleton and/or the gliding motility apparatus play a crucial role and recent results have elucidated aspects of these processes, especially in terms of the molecular characterization and interaction of the increasing number of partners involved, and the signalling mechanisms implicated. The present review aims to summarize the most recent findings in the field.
