Growth effects upon treatment of gametocytes with sodium fluoroacetate (NaFAc). A Stage II/III culture of gametocytes was incubated under standard culture conditions with or without the addition of 1 or 10 mmol/l NaFAc or sodium acetate (NaAc). Stage distribution and parasitemia levels were assessed in Giemsa smears made on days 0 to 7 (see Additional file 6). Red, Stage II/III; blue, Stage IV; green, Stage V. Error bars represent SEM where nā€‰=ā€‰3 biological replicates.
