Virulence in rodent malaria: host genotype by parasite genotype interactions.

Abstract:

In an effort to understand what limits the virulence of malaria parasites, we infected inbred mice of three genotypes (C57Bl/6J, CBA/Ca and DBA/2) with one of two parasite lines of the rodent malaria Plasmodium chabaudi. One of these parasite lines had been serially passaged through C57Bl/6J mice and had evolved higher asexual growth rate, virulence and transmission in the process. The other parasite line was the unadapted ancestral line which had low virulence. In all three host genotypes, t...
