Plasmodium vivax malaria caused is a public health problem that produces very high morbidity worldwide. During invasion of red blood cells the parasite requires the intervention of high molecular weight complex rhoptry proteins that are also essential for cytoadherence. PfClag9, a member of the RhopH multigene family, has been identified as being critical during Plasmodium falciparum infection. This study describes identifying and characterizing the pfclag9 ortholog in P. vivax (hereinafter… CONTINUE READING
