Growth curves for intraerythrocytic stages of P. berghei WT and KO parasites in mice.

Mice were injected intraperitoneally with 105 P. berghei infected-RBCs/reticulocytes and the parasite growth was routinely monitored as described in Materials and Methods. Multiple fields were used to quantify the parasite infected cells. The data provided represent the mean ± S.D. obtained from 6 animals.
