1. parasitize what?
2. What kind of parasites (how many hosts)?
3. Where located relative to cell?
3. epicellular (close proximity but not inside cell)
What are the main differences in the repro cycle here?
naked sporozoites (no sporocysts)
oocysts are fully sporulated when excreted
means they are infective immediately
(the stuff in yellow)
What are the common 4?
what is the one we really need to know?
how big are cryptosporidum spoes?
parvum, muris, baileyi, meleagradis
parvum (the only one we are going to worry about... so forget about remembering the four)
are always the smallest
exactly what we talked about in last two lectures
what is the difference here though?
What is another big difference?
the number of sporozoites (and the fact that they are naked) in the oocyst
all takes place on the surface of the epithelial cells
1. typically get at what age - older calves more likely to get what?
2. Infection lasts how long?
3. can they develop immunity?
defining disease in what?
What drugs can control infection?
crypto (not bovine coccidia)
