Morphogenesis of many protozoans depends on a polarized establishment of cytoskeletal structures. In malaria‐causing parasites, this can be observed when a round zygote develops into an elongated motile ookinete within the mosquito stomach. This morphogenesis is mediated by the pellicle cytoskeletal structures, including the inner membrane complex (IMC) and the underlying subpellicular microtubules (SPMs).
