Live attenuated vaccine strains, such as type I nonreplicating uracil auxotroph mutants, are highly effective in eliciting lifelong immunity to virulent acute infection by Toxoplasma gondii. However, it is currently unknown whether vaccine-elicited immunity can provide protection against acute infection

N(6)-methyladenosine (m(6)A) modification plays a fundamental role in the epigenetic regulation of the mammalian transcriptome. m(6)A can be demethylated by fat mass- and obesity-associated (FTO) protein and α-ketoglutarate-dependent dioxygenase alkB homolog 5 (ALKBH5) protein. However, the importance of m(6)A alteration
