A 60-kDa Plasmodium falciparum protein at the moving junction formed between merozoite and erythrocyte during invasion.

Abstract

Invasion of erythrocytes by malaria merozoites requires the formation of a junction of attachment between erythrocyte and merozoite membranes. The attachment junction initially forms at the apical region of the merozoite. It then moves around to the posterior of the merozoite as invasion proceeds. A monoclonal antibody against a 60-kDa merozoite protein… (More)
