- molting of a cuticle.
- a parasite that lives on the outer surface of a host.
- accumulation of excess fluids in the tissues.
- a series of protective membranes enclosing a zygote and any subsequent
developmental stages until their emergence from the membranes.
- ejaculatory duct:
- in Nematoda and Acanthocephala, the terminal portion of the male
reproductive system which connects to the cloaca and expels spermatozoa during
- an egg containing a fully-developed embryo.
- the processes of development of an embryo from a fertilized egg.
- the formation of a capsule of host tissue around a parasite as a host
- secretion of a cyst wall by a parasite around itself.
- RNA rich structure within the nucleus of some Protozoa.
- possessing a swollen body after taking a blood meal.
- a nematode larva which retains the cuticle from a previous molt.
- a form of Trypanosomatidae with the flagellum arising anterior to the
nucleus, and possessing an undulating membrane.
- erythrocytic cycle:
- the later part of the life cycle of malarial organisms in which
erythrocytes of the vertebrate host are involved.
- the muscular or glandular portion of the digestive tract between the mouth
and stomach or intestine.
- excretory vesicle:
- a bladder into which the excretory ducts empty.
- the release of microgamete from a microgametocyte of malarial organisms.
- exoerythrocytic cycle:
- the first part of the life cycle of malarial organisms in which tissues of
the vertebrate host other than the blood are involved.
- located outside of host cells, in tissues or in body cavities.
