  1. aAlphabetical numbering corresponds to experiment numbers 5, 16, 18, 20, 21, 22 and 23 given in Table 1. In these experiments, a few of the excess mosquitoes were sacrificed pre- and post- days 12/13 to examine the presence of sporozoites. Denominator indicates the number of mosquitoes dissected and numerator indicates number positive for sporozoites
