Egress of malaria parasites from the host cell requires the concerted rupture of its enveloping membranes. Hence, we investigated the role of the plasmodial perforin-like protein PPLP2 in the egress of Plasmodium falciparum from erythrocytes. PPLP2 is expressed in blood stage schizonts and mature gametocytes. The protein localizes in vesicular structures,(More)
Plasmodium falciparum perforin like proteins (PfPLPs) are an important arsenal for the entry and exit of malaria parasites. These proteins bind and oligomerize on the membrane in calcium dependent manner and form an open pore. The calcium dependent pore forming activity of PLPs is usually conferred by their C2 like C-terminal domain. Here, we have tried to(More)
Malaria, a leading parasitic killer, is caused by Plasmodium spp. The pathology of the disease starts when Plasmodium merozoites infect erythrocytes to form rings, that matures through a large trophozoite form and develop into schizonts containing multiple merozoites. The number of intra-erythrocytic merozoites is a key-determining factor for multiplication(More)
BACKGROUND Acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) with t (15;17) is a distinct category of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and is reported to show better response to anthracyclin based chemotherapy. A favorable overall prognosis over other subtypes of AML has been reported for APL patients but still about 15% patients relapse. METHODS This study evaluated the(More)
UNLABELLED Wheat, the major source of vegetable protein in human diet, provides staple food globally for a large proportion of the human population. With higher protein content than other major cereals, wheat has great socio- economic importance. Nonetheless for wheat, three important fungal pathogens i.e. rust, smut and bunt are major cause of significant(More)
Passive immunization with antibodies to recombinant Plasmodium falciparum P0 riboprotein (rPfP0, 61-316 amino acids) provides protection against malaria. Carboxy-terminal 16 amino acids of the protein (PfP0C0) are conserved and show 69% identity to human and mouse P0. Antibodies to this domain are found in 10-15% of systemic lupus erythematosus patients. We(More)
