Germinal rod

Germinal rod --> sporozoite

One of the minute elongated bodies resulting from the repeated division of the oocyst during sporogony. In the case of the malarial parasite, it is the form that is concentrated in the salivary glands and introduced into the blood by the bite of a mosquito; it enters the liver cells (exoerythrocytic cycle), whose progeny, the merozoites, infect the red blood cells to initiate clinical malaria.

Synonym: germinal rod, zoite, zygotoblast.

Origin: sporo-_ g. Zoon, animal
