Effects of CoNPs on the encystation of A. castellanii belonging to the T4 genotype. In brief, 5 × 105 A. castellanii trophozoites were incubated with an encystation media (8% glucose, 5 mM MgCl2) and different CoNPs at 30 °C for 72 h. Subsequently, cysts were enumerated after treating with 0.25% SDS. The results show significant inhibition of encystation when compared to the control. *P < 0.05
