Plasmodium berghei (P. berghei), strain Rec5 is a highly pyrimethamine-resistant line derived from P. berghei, strain ANKA, between 1990-1992, by treating infected mice with high doses of pyrimethamine and selecting for recrudescence for five rounds. P. berghei, strain ANKA was isolated in July 1965 from Anopheles dureni millecampsi mosquitoes collected in the River Kasapa, Democratic Republic of Congo.

P. berghei, Rec5 exhibits similar characteristics to the highly virulent and lethal parental ANKA line, except that it proceeds through sporogonic development more slowly than the pyrimethamine-sensitive parental line. The complete genome of the parent strain, P. berghei ANKA, has been sequenced (BioProject: PRJNA317456).

Each vial contains approximately 0.5 mL of P. berghei-infected mouse blood in Glycerolyte 57 solution (1:2). This item is host restricted and must be amplified in rodents.
