Toxoplasma gondii

I am writing a "Research Grant 
Proposal" for my Cell Physiology class
and I need help in finding a Strain of
T. gondii that is either deficient 
in cholesterol synthesis (doubtful)
or would be resistant to drugs that
inhibit cholesterol synthesis i.e.
Levostatin or pravastatin or any other

My basic hypothesis of my proposal is that T. 
gondii needs the host cell for cholesterol

It's not actually going to be tested.
It's basically just a research paper.
But if I could find an appropriate
strain it would make my life a whole
lot easier.
