Morphological characteristics of gametocytes produced by the Plasmodium falciparum FCB2 strain. FCB2 strain gametocytes obtained from parasite culture at 0.3% parasitaemia were analysed by Giemsa staining. Gametocytes were visualized at 100X on a Primo Star Carl Zeiss microscope and 3 biological replicates were performed, counting minimum 3 fields per replica. Black arrows indicate parasite forms. A FCB2 gametocyte stage I–II; B FCB2 gametocyte stage II–III; CE FCB2 gametocyte stage IV–V; F, G FCB2 form similar to zygote stage; H FCB2 form suggesting ookinete stage
