Morphology P. berghei: electron microscopy

Figure 1-12: transmission electronmicrographs of various blood stages of the ANKA isolate of P. berghei (from Mons, B (1996) Acta Leiden. 54, 1-124). The emphasis is on development of gametocytes. The blood stages are obtained from synchronized infections at several time points after invasion (hpi). Magnification 16.000-17.000x.
