Some Aspects of Microsporidian Physiology
Biochemical and physiological studies of microsporidians that have been accomplished in the past few years are due, in large part, to their recent availability and to methods for cultivation and maintenance of these organisms in the laboratory. New experimental techniques have facilitated obtaining basic insight of some of the general features of this group of parasites.
