Abstract: Sporozoites of Sarcocystis cruzi were inoculated onto monolayer cultures of bovine pulmonary artery endothelial (CPA) cells. Sporozoites entered the cells, formed large and small multinucleate schizonts, and produced large numbers of merozoites. Continuous cultivation from the original sporozoite inoculum has been maintained for more than 1,320 days by subinoculating merozoites onto new cultures of CPA cells. During this time, the capacity to produce both types of schizonts was preserved, and schizogony was th…
