    Within minutes after a blood meal is taken, mature microgametocytes emerge from erythrocytes by rupturing the erythrocyte membrane, and then extrude de novo eight motile microgametes in a process termed exflagellation. The microgametes break free to form freely motile forms capable of fertilization of macrogametes. The image represents a montage of exflagellating malaria microgametes viewed by immunofluorescence staining with anti–α-tubulin II sera (provided by Dr. Michal Fried, Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, Washington, DC). See related article in this issue by Templeton et al., pp. 1599–1609.
