Glucose Catabolism by the Simian Malaria Parasite Plasmodium knowlesi

Abstract

ALTHOUGH the parasitology of malaria has been extensively studied1, biochemical aspects of the relationships between the intra-erythrocytic parasite and its host erythrocyte are poorly understood. The main source of metabolic energy for the erythrocytic stages of the parasite is the breakdown of glucose with formation of lactic acid2–6, which it may carry… (More)
