Anopheles mosquitoes frequently respond to invading malaria parasites with a rejection mechanism consisting of phenoloxidase-mediated melanization of ookinetes in the mosquito midgut epithelium. The relative roles of hemolymph vs. midgut phenoloxidase in this rejection mechanism is unclear. We have separated and identified phenoloxidase isozymes from midgut(More)
Mice (BALB/c) were immunized to mosquito saliva by repeated bites of Anopheles stephensi mosquitoes. Studies were conducted on the ability of these mice to develop antibodies against the apyrase component of the saliva. By means of immunoprecipitation procedures and Western blot analysis, we demonstrated the presence of antiapyrase antibodies to the(More)
Studies were conducted on the distribution of anionic and cationic sites on the surface of intact Plasmodium berghei and P. yoelii sporozoites. Anionic and cationic ferritins were used as probes for electron microscope studies and fluorescein conjugates of the same charged ferritins were used for correlative studies by fluorescence light microscopy. We(More)
