Abstract

The interaction of tachhzauert of with plant protoplasts was compared with their interaction with their interaction with cultures of HeLa cells. Unlike the HeLa cells, the plant protoplasts were refractory to invwiest under all conditions tested. The lack of invasion was not an artefact of the protopiast isolation technique. This is the first description of a cell type refractory to Toxoplasme invasion; hence possible mechanisms for the specificity of parasite-host cell interaction can now be studied.
