Toxoplasmosis is a zoonotic disease caused by a ubiquitous protozoan parasite called Toxoplasma gondii, which caninfect all mammal and bird species throughout the world. seroprevalence varies widely between countries. Studieshave estimated that between 7-34% of people in the UK have been infected with T. gondii. The vast majority of thesepeople will not have noticed any symptoms, however about 10% of people develop a mild to moderate self limitingflu-like illness. Following the acute active stage of the infection the parasite persists in the body in the form of cysts,particularly in heart and skeletal muscle and nervous system tissues, for many years, and usually for life. Inimmunocompetent persons these cysts do not pose a health risk. We will use RNA-seq to quantify the transcriptionalresponse of macrophages to T gondii infection.This data is part of a pre-publication release.
