Toxoplasma: guess who's coming to dinner

In this issue of Cell, Coppens and coworkers (Coppens et al., 2006) describe how Toxoplasma gondii, an obligate intracellular parasite, feeds on the host. Coppens et al. provide evidence that the parasite takes host cell endosomes and lysosomes hostage by sequestering them where the parasite resides, within invaginations of the parasitophorous vacuole.
