“Salivary gland cellular architecture in the Asian malaria vector mosquito Anopheles stephensi”

December 7, 2015 - 15:39 -- Open Access
Wells M, Andrew D
Parasites & Vectors 2015, 8 :617 (2 December 2015)

These analyses confirmed morphological features previously described using electron microscopy and uncovered a high degree of individual variation in SG structure. Our studies provide evidence for two alternative models for the origin of the salivary duct, the structure facilitating parasite transport out of SGs.
