The fine structure of the exoerythrocytic cycle of an avian malarial parasite, Plasmodium fallax, has been analyzed using preparations grown in a tissue culture system derived from embryonic turkey brain cells which were fixed in glutaraldehyde-OsO(4). The mature merozoite, an elongated cell 3- to 4-micro long and 1- to 2-micro wide, is ensheathed in a(More)
Electron microscope studies of the erythrocytic forms, including gametocytes and asexual schizonts, of the protozoa Plasmodium fallax, P. lophurae, and P. cathemerium, have revealed a "cytostome," a specialized organelle of the pellicular membrane which is active in the ingestion of host cell cytoplasm. In material fixed in glutaraldehyde and postfixed in(More)
