Hi Dear all, 
 I am a PhD student and I want to transform Toxoplasma cysts
(bradyzoites) into tachyzoites! I have a protocol which uses
intraperitoneal inoculation on mice and a peritoneal washing after 10
days with buffer but I see no tachyzoites!!!
Does anybody have an idea on that staff?
Thanx a lot.
