Abstract

Freeze-fracturing has been used to study the ultrastructure of the sporozoites of the malarial parasite within the salivary gland of the mosquito . The architecture of the pellicular complex of the salivary gland sporozoites was essentially the same as that reported for the intraoocystic forms, but the outline of cross-fractured sporozoites was more flattened and crescent shaped as opposed to the circular outline described for the intraoocystic sporozoites. The salivary gland sporozoites of also exhibited apical rosettes and a cytosome connected to a food vacuole, two unique structures not previously reported for malarial sporozoites.
