Encephalitozoon intestinalis causes diarrhea and chronic wasting, while E. cuniculi commonly affects the central nervous system, the respiratory system, and the. Encephalitozoon intestinalis is a recently described microsporidian which causes intestinal and The Full Text of this article is available as a PDF (M). Encephalitozoon intestinalis, Encephalitozoon hellem,. Encephalitozoon cuniculi, and Enterocytozoon bieneusi are responsible for over 90% of microsporidia.
In the case of Encephalitozoon cuniculi, electron microscopic studies suggested that the PV membrane is derived from the host cell .
Subsequent studies from Bohne and colleagues established that the early PVM is non-fusogenic and devoid of any endolysosomal markers immediately after invasion  , and moreover that the lipids of the PVM are indeed host cell-derived and that the PVM also forms simultaneously with the extrusion of the sporoplasm. This is all consistent with the suggestion that the early PVM is an invagination of the host cell plasma membrane  , .
Due to the high speed of host cell entry, we suggest that physical forces may determine the presence and composition of host cell surface proteins on the newly formed PVM, which would be a prerequisite of IRG protein recognition. Although E. This study was designed based on knowledge of the interaction of the mouse IRG protein system and T.
We found four major similarities in the action of the IRG system in defense against E. While the IRG system clearly plays an essential role in defending mice and probably other small rodents against certain infections, there is every reason to believe that the system is effectively completely absent from humans and higher primates, birds, cats and doubtless many other mammalian species too . The sporadic occurrence of a developed IRG system among vertebrate groups suggests that its possession is costly and only justified when certain classes of parasite exert intense selection pressures .
In vitro passage of E. Spores were routinely propagated in Hs27 cells as described in .
Briefly, infected monolayers were scraped 7—12 days post infection and the suspension was passed through a 26G needle. The first centrifugation 10 min at rpm removed the host cell debris, whereas the second centrifugation 20 min at rpm sedimented the spores. In order to obtain synchronous infection, spores were allowed to infect the cells for 2—4 h followed by one careful washing step with PBS and addition of fresh medium.
Cells were fixed or harvested at the indicated time points post infection. Microsporidia stained with Chromotrope 2R and Gram chromotrope stains.
