Malaria parasite. Image 4 of 10. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a sexual male malaria (Plasmodium sp.) microgametocyte in a mosquito (Anopheles sp.) gut. The microgametocyte releases male microgametes (purple, one at top right) after it is ingested by a mosquito feeding on an infected human. Each motile gamete possesses a flagellum built from fibrils (purple, paired) assembled near the gametocyte membrane. The male gametes fertilise the female macrogametocytes (not seen). Asexual reproduction then produces the stage that infects humans. Magnification x5700 at 6x7cm size. For the malaria life cycle, see images M210/197-206.
