Dear All

Could anyone tell me what is known about the energy metabolism of
Cryptosporidium parvum, particularly if there is any evidence for
anaerobic phases in the life cycle of this parasite. A similar question
for Trypanosomes, anyone know how T.brucei gets by if deprived of
oxygen?

Many thanks
