There is a growing family of novel GTPases conserved among higher plants and vertebrates, abbreviated as AIG1, IAP, IMAP, and IAN, respectively. Here, we comparatively analyze the human gene family encoding GTPases of the immunity-associated protein family recently re-termed GIMAP. Chromosome 7q36.1 contains, within 300 kb, a gimap gene cluster with seven(More)
Testosterone induces a lethal outcome in otherwise self-healing blood-stage malaria caused by Plasmodium chabaudi. Here, we examine possible testosterone effects on the antimalaria effectors spleen and liver in female C57BL/6 mice. Self-healing malaria activates gating mechanisms in the spleen and liver that lead to a dramatic reduction in trapping(More)
