Dear All

Can anyone tell me if any work has been done on the nature of energy
metabolism in CRYPTOSPORIDIUM PARVUM. The main thrust of my question is
Are there any indications that this beast may undergo an anaerobic phase
during it's lifecycle.

In the same vein (?) how do Trypanosomes fare if deprived of oxygen?

Thanks in advance for any time devoted to answering what may be a
trivial question
