Selective association of a fragment of the knob protein with spectrin, actin and the red cell membrane.
The knob protein of Plasmodium falciparum is essential for the formation of knob-like protrusions on the host erythrocyte membrane. A functional domain of the knob protein was identified. ThisExpand

The primary structure of a Plasmodium falciparum polypeptide related to heat shock proteins.
A cDNA library constructed from ring-stage RNA isolated from Plasmodium falciparum FCR-3/Gambia was screened with immune human serum and two related positive clones were isolated. Nucleotide sequenceExpand

Structure of the knob protein (KP) gene of Plasmodium falciparum.
We have determined the nucleotide sequence of the gene encoding the knob protein (KP) of Plasmodium falciparum (FCR-3/Gambia). The gene is interrupted by an intron which contains 34 imperfectExpand

Expression, partial purification and immunogenicity of fragments of the knob protein of Plasmodium falciparum.
Three structural domains of the histidine-rich knob protein (KP) of Plasmodium falciparum were expressed in Escherichia coli. A single-step purification scheme was devised to obtain great enrichmentExpand

Circadian migratory behavior of a cestode symbiote in the rat host.
Under specified experimental conditions, Hymenolepis diminuta exhibits a longitudinal circadian migration in the small intestine of the rat. This was shown by changes in distribution of total wormExpand
