Binding of Plasmodium merozoite proteins RON2 and AMA1 triggers commitment to invasion.


The commitment of Plasmodium merozoites to invade red blood cells (RBCs) is marked by the formation of a junction between the merozoite and the RBC and the coordinated induction of the parasitophorous vacuole. Despite its importance, the molecular events underlying the parasite's commitment to invasion are not well understood. Here we show that the… (More)
