Malaria parasites invade erythrocytes of their host both for asexual multiplication and for differentiation to male and female gametocytes - the precursor cells of Plasmodium gametes. For further development the parasite is dependent on efficient release of the asexual daughter cells and of the gametes from the host erythrocyte. How malarial parasites exit their host cells remains largely unknown. We here report the characterization of a Plasmodium berghei protein that is involved in egress of… CONTINUE READING
