Mechanisms of mosquito midgut invasion by Plasmodium ookinetes


Summary

Malaria, AIDS and tuberculosis are three infectious diseases that cause the largest numbers of deaths worldwide. Of these, only malaria requires an intermediate vector for transmission to occur. Therefore, the mosquito vector is a potential weak point in the transmission cycle. A better understanding of parasite development in the mosquito may translate in the discovery of new strategies to fight this deadly disease.
