Electron microscopical observations on gametogenesis and fertilization in cultured Plasmodium falciparum

Electron microscopical observations on gametogenesis and fertilization in cultured Plasmodium falciparum

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.

Human serum high-density lipoprotein (HDL) is necessary and sufficient for the short-term maintenance of Plasmodium falciparum in in vitro culture. However, at high concentrations it is toxic to the parasite. A heat-labile component is apparently...
