The merozoite surface of the pathogenic malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum is comprised of proteins that are important for the identification and invasion of human red cells. Merozoite surface protein (MSP)3 is a polymorphic protein associated with the surface of merozoites and is also a vaccine candidate. A distinct feature of the MSP3 sequence is three blocks of alanine-rich heptad repeats that are predicted to form an intramolecular coiled-coil. Three orthologues of MSP3 that also… CONTINUE READING
