Abstract

Human hepatoma cells (HepG2-A16) have been shown to be useful for the growth of the exoerythrocytic stages of . In order to determine whether the parasites grown in these cells are morphologically similar to those grown in vivo, we performed electron microscopy on the exoerythrocytic (EE) schizonts of developed from sporozoites. This study showed for the first time that EE schizonts within these cells closely resemble other plasmodial EE schizonts both in vivo and in vitro.
