An essential step in the transmission of the malaria parasite to the Anopheles vector is the transformation of the mature gametocytes into gametes in the mosquito gut, where they egress from the erythrocytes and mate to produce a zygote, which matures into a motile ookinete. Osmiophilic bodies are electron dense secretory organelles of the female(More)
Although malaria is a preventable and curable human disease, millions of people risk to be infected by the Plasmodium parasites and to develop this illness. Therefore, there is an urgent need to identify new anti-malarial drugs. Ca2+ signalling regulates different processes in the life cycle of Plasmodium falciparum, representing a suitable target for the(More)
Ability of Plasmodium falciparum gametocytes to become extracellular during gametogenesis in the mosquito midgut is a key step of the parasite life cycle. Reliable and quantitative measurement of the efficiency of gamete egress is currently constrained by the fact that this phenomenon is usually observed and quantified in vitro either by live microscopy, by(More)
