The formation of sporozoites of Babesia canis was studied by light- and electron microscopy in the salivary gland cells of adult female ticks from the 2nd day after attachment until 1 day after detachment. It was found that this process was initiated by the binary division of kinetes that had already entered or entered during the period examined. During division the kinetes (15 X 2.5 microns) lost their typical organelles, reduced their three-layered pellicle to a single membrane and became… CONTINUE READING
