It gets in to body as a sporozoites which passes to lever and then released in to blood stream as merozoites. The apical membrane antigen (AMA-1) is expressed at the apical surface of merozoites and sporozoites during infection, previously named immunogenic type 1 integral protein, plays an important role in hepatocyte and erythrocyte invasion (Hodder et al., 2001; Silvie et al., 2004).
