Двойная энергетика токсоплазмы

Из статьи "Mechanisms of Toxoplasma gondii persistence and latency":

"This idea is supported by bio-
chemical analyses which concluded that bradyzoites lack a
functional TCA cycle and respiratory chain, suggesting a predominant role for anaerobic glycolysis during this
stage (Denton et al., 1996). In contrast, tachyzoites likely
use both mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation and
glycolysis to generate ATP."
