<div><p>Recent information has revealed the functional diversity and importance of mitochondria in many cellular processes including orchestrating the innate immune response. Intriguingly, several infectious agents, such as <i>Toxoplasma</i>, <i>Legionella</i>, and <i>Chlamydia</i>, have been reported to grow within vacuoles surrounded by host mitochondria. Although many hypotheses have been proposed for the existence of host mitochondrial association (HMA), the causes and biological consequences of HMA have remained unanswered. Here we show that HMA is present in type I and III strains of <i>Toxoplasma</i> but missing in type II strains, both <i>in vitro</i> an...
