Fig. 4

Illustration of cell cycle phases in Plasmodium erythrocytic schizogony (a) and Plasmodium male gametogenesis (b). The predicted involvement of cyclins, CDKs and other kinases is shown at each phase. Placement of such components is only loosely chronological since most details are unknown. CDKs/Crks with a dashed outline indicate cyclin independence. Crks or CDKs predicted to be involved in transcriptional regulation are transparent (without a white background). Interactions identified in vitro between cyclins and CDKs are indicated by a dashed orange arrow. Table 2 identifies all sources used to construct the figure. The cell cycles at sporogony and hepatic schizogony are omitted due to the lack of information about these stages
