A human schwannoma cell line supports the in vitro adhesion of Plasmodium falciparum infected erythrocytes to chondroitin-4-sulfate

Abstract

The paucity of human cell lines expressing defined receptors for the cytoadhesion of erythrocytes infected with the human malarial parasite Plasmodium falciparum has hampered the investigation of this important virulence property. Here, we investigate a permanent cell line derived from a human, malignant schwannoma, termed HMS-97, and show that this cell… (More)
