This chapter provides an overview of the dynamic nature of malaria from the perspective of the development of merozoites within an infected erythrocyte and the release of infectious merozoites, through the initiation and completion of the reinvasion process. The chapter encompasses discoveries or observations obtained through studies of different species of , which together have greatly aided and refined our understanding of these events. These species include not only the human malarias and , but also the simian malaria , the chimpanzee malaria , bird malarias such as and , and the rodent malarias, principally and . Malaria merozoites have a plasma membrane and the basic cellular machinery of typical eukaryotic cells, including a nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi network, ribosomes, and mitochondria. As a merozoite begins to invade an red blood cells (RBCs), an internal membrane-lined invasion pit develops. The whole process of merozoite invasion can be divided into three or four distinct phases with a number of ultrastructural alterations and molecular events attributed to each phase, with an untold number of others likely to be discovered in the future. Merozoites must first be released from the wornout, hemoglobin-depleted, and extensively altered erythrocyte that hosted their development. Although many proteins have been identified in the spheroidal dense bodies of , only a few proteins besides ring-infected erythrocyte surface antigen (RESA) have been located in the dense bodies of .
