Commitment Isn't for Everyone

Abstract

The majority of malaria parasites during human infection are asexual and are unable to be transmitted to mosquitoes. Only sexually differentiated parasites (gametocytes) can be successfully transmitted to complete the lifecycle. In a recent study by Bancells et al. (Nat. Microbiol. 2019;4:144–154), a new route of sexual conversion is identified that does not require a prior round of replication.
