A low-sulfated chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan (CSPG) has been shown to be the receptor for the adherence of Plasmodium falciparum-infected red blood cells (IRBCs) in human placenta. Recently,(More)
In pregnant women infected with Plasmodium falciparum, the parasite-infected red blood cells (IRBCs) sequester in the placenta through chondroitin 4-sulfate (C4S)-mediated adherence. The pattern of(More)
The adherence of Plasmodium falciparum-infected red blood cells (IRBCs) in human placenta is mediated by chondroitin 4-sulfate (C4S). The C4S-adherent parasites selected from laboratory strains have(More)
The structures of the bovine corneal chondroitin sulfate (CS) chains and the nature of core proteins to which these chains are attached have not been studied in detail. In this study, we show that(More)
Infection with Plasmodium falciparum during pregnancy leads to chondroitin 4-sulfate-mediated adhesion of the infected red blood cells (IRBCs) in the placenta, causing severe health complications to(More)
