Cytoadherence and sequestration in Plasmodium falciparum: defining the ties that bind.
Infected erythrocytes containing the more mature stages of the human malaria Plasmodium falciparum may adhere to endothelial cells and uninfected red cells. These phenomena, called sequestration andExpand

Studies of Plasmodium falciparum cytoadherence using immortalized human brain capillary endothelial cells.
The cytoadherence of Plasmodium falciparum-infected erythrocytes was studied using immortalized human brain capillary endothelial cells. The immortalized cells, denoted as BB19, derived from theExpand

Cytoadherence of Malaria-Infected Red Blood Cells Involves Exposure of Phosphatidylserine
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a membrane phospholipid which in intact cells is exclusively localized in the inner leaflet of the lipid bilayer. However, once cells undergo apoptosis or oxidative stress,Expand

Phospholipid composition, cholesterol content and cholesterol exchange in Plasmodium falciparum-infected red cells.
The membrane lipid composition and [3H]cholesterol exchange rate were studied in both normal human erythrocytes and those infected with the human malaria Plasmodium falciparum. The host cell membraneExpand

Scanning electron microscope-analysis of the protrusions (knobs) present on the surface of Plasmodium falciparum-infected erythrocytes
The nature of the surface deformations of erythrocytes infected with the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum was analyzed using scanning electron microscopy at two stages of the 48-hExpand

Plasmodium falciparum: pfalhesin and CD36 form an adhesin/receptor pair that is responsible for the pH-dependent portion of cytoadherence/sequestration.
The cytoadherent behavior of two Plasmodium falciparum (human malaria) cell lines, FCR-3 and ITO4 (a cell line with elevated ICAM-1 adherence), was studied using CHO cells transfected with CD36 orExpand
