Interaction between host complement and mosquito-midgut-stage Plasmodium berghei

Interaction between host complement and mosquito-midgut-stage Plasmodium berghei

Infection and Immunity 69(8): 5064-5071

After ingestion by mosquitoes, gametocytes of malaria parasites become activated and form extracellular gametes that are no longer protected by the red blood cell membrane against immune effectors of host blood. We have studied the action of complement on Plasmodium developmental stages in the mosquito blood meal using the rodent malaria parasite P. berghei and rat complement as a model.
