Erythrocytes infected with the malaria parasite Plasmodium chabaudi contain the neo-protein Pc90 in their plasma membrane. We investigate origin, membrane disposition, and intraerythrocytic traffic of this Pc90. Metabolic labeling of P.-infected erythrocytes, combined with cell fractionation as well as Western blot analysis and immunoprecipitation using a Pc90-recognizing monoclonal antibody, show that Pc90 is synthesized by early to mid trophozoites and is transported without any apparent… CONTINUE READING
