Digestive vacuole membrane in Plasmodium falciparum-infected erythrocytes: relevance to templated nucleation of hemozoin.

Abstract

Crystallization of the malaria pigment hemozoin sequesters the toxic heme byproduct of hemoglobin digestion in Plasmodium -infected red blood cells (RBCs). Recently, we applied electron and X-ray imaging and diffraction methods to elucidate this process. We observed crystals oriented with their {100} faces at the inner membrane surface of the digestive… (More)
