Our paper on the role of parafusin PRP1 in Toxoplasma Ca2+-dependent phosphorylation is posted on bioRxiv (doi:

We attempted to display that the calcium mediated control of microneme secretion is essential for host cell invasion and egress of Toxoplasma gondii. Here it is shown that the two phosphoglucomutases in Toxoplasma both function in the translation of a spike in calcium into a burst in microneme secretion.
