Abstract

Trichinella infection results in formation of a capsule in infected muscles. The capsule is a residence of the parasite which is composed of the nurse cell and fibrous wall. The process of nurse cell formation is complex and includes infected muscle cell response de-differentiation, cell cycle re-entry and arrest and satellite cell responses activation, proliferation and differentiation. Some events that occur during the nurse cell formation are analogous to those occurring during muscle cell regeneration-repair. This article reviews capsule formation with emphasis on this analogy.
