As the malaria parasite develops within the erythrocyte, a series of molecules are produced, which find their way first across the parasitophorous vacuole membrane, then through the system of membranous clefts in the cytoplasm of the infected cell, to end up associated with the erythrocyte membrane. The domains of the erythrocyte-associated malaria antigens which are exposed at the cell surface are readily recognised by the host's immune system and represent important targets in the early… CONTINUE READING
