Measuring Solute Transport in Toxoplasma gondii Parasites

Rajendran, Esther; Kirk, Kiaran; van Dooren, Giel


The uptake of host-derived nutrients is key to the growth and survival of Toxoplasma gondii parasites. Nutrients are acquired via solute transporters that localize to the plasma membrane of the parasites. In this chapter, we describe methodology by which the uptake of solutes via plasma membrane transporters may be monitored and characterized. These assays, used here to investigate the uptake of amino acids into parasites, have broad applicability in measuring the uptake of a diverse range of...[Show more]
