Serologic response of the opossum Didelphis virginiana to a temperature-sensitive mutant (ts-4) of Toxoplasma gondii



Serologic response of the opossum Didelphis virginiana to a temperature-sensitive mutant (ts-4) of Toxoplasma gondii



Journal of Parasitology 78(4): 741-743



A study was designed to measure the T. gondii-specific IgM and IgG antibody responses of opossums inoculated with tachyzoites of the temperature-sensitive mutant of T. gondii, ts-4, and to examine its persistence in the tissues. Four young opossums seronegative for anti-Toxoplasma gondii IgM and IgG antibodies immediately after capture and 4 weeks later were injected sc with 1.8 x 106 ts-4 tachyzoites; a 5th opossum (also seronegative) received an injection of saline only.
