Electron microscopical observations on gametogenesis and fertilization in cultured Plasmodium falciparum

Electron microscopical observations on gametogenesis and fertilization in cultured Plasmodium falciparum

Japanese Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 19(1): 25-31

Gametogenesis and gamete fertilization were studied by electron microscopy after the prolonged culture of P. falciparum gametocytes. When the erythrocyte plasma membrane separated from the gametocyte during gametogenesis, a small part of the gametocyte cytoplasm which was enveloped with the multilayered sheaths of the erythrocyte plasma membrane, was released from the gametocyte into culture medium. The macrogamete cytoplasm was penetrated by the microgamete.
