Fig. 2

Time series RT-rtPCR detection of P. falciparum in excreta from groups of 5 An. stephensi mosquitoes. Excreta was collected daily from day 4 to 14 post-exposure (PE). a Mosquitoes with 68.2% oocyst rate and 9730 ± 910 sporozoites per mosquito. b Mosquitoes with 91.3% oocyst rate and 5630 ± 1460 sporozoites per mosquito. Lower Ct values correspond to a greater concentration of starting template; a blank cell indicates that P. falciparum RNA was not detected. An X indicates containers with no visible excreta spots
