Abstract

Oocysts of developed normally on the gut of the mosquito , rupturing and releasing sporozoites at 10–14 days post-infection. Subsequently, however, sporozoites were never found in this mosquito's salivary glands. Heterologous transplants of whole salivary glands from uninfected and , a completely susceptible mosquito, into the abdomens of insects heavily infected with mature oocysts were done. Sporozoites failed to infect glands implanted in but did enter glands implanted in . These experiments suggest that sporozoites are unable to recognize glands.
