Plasmodium fallax: the invasion of host cells by exoerythrocytic merozoites in tissue culture



Plasmodium fallax: the invasion of host cells by exoerythrocytic merozoites in tissue culture



Journal of Parasitology 73(1): 77-79



Exoerythrocytic merozoites of Plasmodium fallax in tissue culture have been observed and photographed in time-lapse cinemicrography as they invaded new host cells. Entry into the host cells was rapid and frequently several merozoites invaded the cells in rapid succession at or near the same site. The invasion proceeded at the broad (posterior) area of the merozoites, away from a filamentous process that usually held clusters of merozoites together in rosette form.
