Essential function of the alveolin network in the subpellicular microtubules and conoid assembly in Toxoplasma gondii
The coccidian subgroup of Apicomplexa possesses an apical complex harboring a conoid, made of unique tubulin polymer fibers. This enigmatic organelle extrudes in extracellular invasive parasites and is associated to the apical polar ring (APR). The APR serves as microtubule-organizing center for the 22 subpellicular microtubules (SPMTs) that are linked to a patchwork of flattened vesicles, via an intricate network composed of alveolins. Here, we capitalize on ultrastructure expansion microscopydoi:10.7554/elife.56635 fatcat:oub2cx23xzbvpmowjwxsqkvli4
