Malaria breaking and entering cell - First time on camera
posted February 25 2011 21:45.45 by Giorgos Lazaridis

Malaria has a really bad reputation - i wonder why. The Plasmodium parasite responsible for malaria is also responsible for the death of a million people yearly, who were bit by infected mosquito. For the first time, the moment when a malaria parasite invades a human red blood cell was captured in camera in high resolution. This video was taken by Jake Baum and colleagues at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research in Melbourne, Australia, who used transmission electron microscopy, immuno-fluorescence and 3D super-resolution microscopy to record thousands of high-definition images of separate invasion events, a process that takes less than 30 seconds.
