Image #   251902E
Name:   Plasmodium falciparum plasmodial merozoite invasion of an erythrocyte
Copyright:   Copyright 2007 Dennis Kunkel Microscopy, Inc.
Description:   Caption: Plasmodium falciparum plasmodial merozoite making initial contact with an erythrocyte (red blood cell) membrane at the beginning of erythrocyte invasion. The invasive merozoite has a distinct trilaminar membrane (green). The merozoite cytoplasm contains a rhoptry neck or duct and rhoptry bulbs (blue), a nucleus (ivory), ribosomes (orange), micronemes (purple) and mitochondria (dark pink). Malaria is caused by Plasmodium spp., parasitic single-celled protozoans called plasmodia. Malaria is spread to humans by species of tropical mosquitoes (Anopheles species). Infection spreads from the liver to the blood, where the plasmodium multiplies inside red blood cells. The plasmodial parasite reproduces asexually in the red blood cells significantly destroying many red blood cells. There are four stages of the parasite that develop in human red blood cells - merozoite stage, ring stage, trophozoite stage and schizont stage. Release of mature Plasmodium merozoites results in further infection and produces bouts of shivering fever (paroxysms) and sweating that may be fatal.
