Host cell remodelling is a hallmark of malaria pathogenesis. It involves protein folding, unfolding and trafficking events and thus participation of chaperones such as Hsp70s and Hsp40s is well speculated. Until recently, only Hsp40s were thought to be the sole representative of the parasite chaperones in the exportome. However, based on the re-annotated(More)
Cell surface structures termed knobs are one of the most important pathogenesis related protein complexes deployed by the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum at the surface of the infected erythrocyte. Despite their relevance to the disease, their structure, mechanisms of traffic and their process of assembly remain poorly understood. In this study, we(More)
The malaria parasite experiences a significant amount of redox stress during its growth in human erythrocytes and heavily relies on secretory functions for pathogenesis. Most certainly, the parasite is equipped with machinery to tackle perturbations in the secretory pathway, like the unfolded protein response pathway in higher eukaryotes. Our bioinformatics(More)
Cephalosporins are of key clinical importance for treatment of bacterial infections. In the past decade, many cephalosporins have been synthesized and evaluated for antibacterial activity. These cephalosporins, with broad spectra of activity and high stability against various β-lactamases such as cefixime, cefteram pivoxil, and cefpodoxime proxetil, have(More)
Mitochondrial heat shock protein 60 (Hsp60) is a nuclear encoded gene product that gets post-translationally translocated into the mitochondria. Using multiple approaches such as immunofluorescence experiments, isoelectric point analysis with two-dimensional gel electrophoresis, and mass spectrometric identification of the signal peptide, we show that Hsp60(More)
PURPOSE The cell membrane of the erythrocytes infected with the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum undergoes several changes during the course of parasite life cycle and forms protrusions known as 'knobs' on its surface during the mature trophozoite and schizont stages. The structural organization of knob components especially PfEMP1 on the iRBC surface(More)
