Table 1 Oocyst and sporozoite formation by pfeik1- parasite clones.

From: PfeIK1, a eukaryotic initiation factor 2α kinase of the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum, regulates stress-response to amino-acid starvation

Clone Exp. no % Infection (no. infected/no. dissected) Median oocyst no. per infected mosquito (range) % Sporozoite-positive (no. infected/no. dissected)
C1 1 15% (2/14) 1.5 (1–2) ND
C8 1 44% (7/16) 10 (1–34) 37% (7/19)
C8 2 20% (5/25) 2 (1–5) ND
  1. There was no difference in the prevalence of mosquitoes positive for the oocyst and sporozoites stages (exp. 2, p = 0.74).
