The formation and final structure of the oocyst wall ofEimeria acervulina: A transmission and scanning electron microscope study

The formation and final structure of the oocyst wall ofEimeria acervulina is described, based on a detailed electron microscope study of the maturing oocysts. After fertilization of the macrogametocyte the wallforming bodies of type I progressively undergo disaggregation into smaller bodies and eventually move into spaces left by the pellicular membranes of… CONTINUE READING
