A Plasmodium falciparum protein which is exported into a new compartment in the host erythrocyte has been located. This protein, exp-1, has a variable region recognized by a monoclonal antibody. Naturally occurring mutants of this region have been characterized. All mutants studied so far have the same A----G transition abolishing the target for the antibody. The exp-1 gene has a complex structure containing two introns. It is highly conserved in five independent, genetically defined parasite… CONTINUE READING
