Description
Microsporidia are opportunistic fungal pathogens that infect organisms as evolutionarily divergent as protists and mammals. Due to their growing impact on the global food supply chain, the environment, and human health, these unusual spore-forming organisms have been classified as emerging pathogens of high priority. Intriguing cell biological features that are central to microsporidian infectivity and pose challenges to drug development are poorly understood due to a lack of structural information and the absence of genetic tools. As energy parasites, microsporidia survive with the smallest eukaryotic genome and without classical mitochondria through an obligat...
