Table 1 Ookinete to oocyst transformation of P. berghei WT, PbCTRP-KO, and PbSOAP-KO parasites.

From: The microneme proteins CTRP and SOAP are not essential for Plasmodium berghei ookinete to oocyst transformation in vitro in a cell free system

  Mean % transformation
  Day 1 Day 3 Day 5
WT -MAT 92.68 (± 1.51) 99.73 (± 0.17) 99.94 (± 0.06)
WT +MAT 96.27 (± 0.86)   
CTRP-KO -MAT 96.76 (± 0.78) 99.70 (± 0.22) 100.00 (± 0.00)
CTRP-KO +MAT 98.85 (± 0.45)   
SOAP-KO -MAT 87.05 (± 5.38) 99.13 (± 0.43) 100.00 (± 0.00)
SOAP-KO +MAT 89.21 (± 4.89)   
  1. Ookinetes from each of the clones were seeded in the absence of Matrigel (-MAT) or with Matrigel (+MAT). Transformation was assessed on days 1, 3, and 5 post-culture. The figures show the mean percentage of transformed ookinetes (± standard error of the mean).
