The protozoan parasite Toxoplasma gondii has a very specialized secretary apparatus. In this review we will discuss how different methodological approaches, including morphological studies, biochemistry and genetics, are revealing a novel secretory organization, whose function is performed, mainly, by a highly conserved protein machinery found in mammalian cells.
