Sequence variation in the Toxoplasma gondii eIF4A gene among strains from different hosts and geographical locations

J. Chen, Fang, S. F., Zhou, D. H., Li, Z. Y., Liu, G. H., and Zhu, X. Q., Sequence variation in the Toxoplasma gondii eIF4A gene among strains from different hosts and geographical locations, vol. 13, pp. 3356-3361, 2014.

Toxoplasma gondii is an opportunistic protozoan parasite that infects a wide range of animals, including humans. The T. gondii eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4A (eIF4A) protein is expressed in the tachyzoite, but its expression is markedly downregulated in the bradyzoite, and it is therefore considered to be associated with tachyzoite virulence.
