The effect of basal lamina components on the growth of P. berghei wild-type, PbCTRP-KO, and PbSOAP-KO oocysts. Three clones of Plasmodium berghei were cultured in the presence or absence of Matrigel. -MAT = no Matrigel; +MAT = with Matrigel; WT = P. berghei ANKA clone 2.34; CTRP-KO = P. berghei CTRP-KO; SOAP-KO = P. berghei SOAP-KO. No differences were observed in the mean size of oocysts cultured in the presence or absence of Matrigel or between parasite clones.
