The complete amino acid sequence of a 55-kDa erythrocyte membrane protein was deduced from cDNA clones isolated from a human reticulocyte library. This protein, p55, is copurified during the isolation of dematin, an actin-bundling protein of the erythrocyte membrane cytoskeleton. Fractions enriched in p55 also contain protein kinase activity that completely(More)
Two recently published reports have described findings which will have a profound impact on the understanding of molecular mechanisms of human resistance to malaria infection. In Melanesian ovalocytosis, a genetic polymorphism found in Papua New Guinea and parts of South East Asia, the red cells are highly resistant to invasion by various species of malaria(More)
