Kinetic characterization of Na+/H+ antiport of Plasmodium falciparum membrane.

Abstract

Intraerythrocytic malaria parasites produce vast amounts of lactic acid through glycolysis. While the egress of lactate is very rapid, the mode of extrusion of H+ is not known. The possible involvement of a Na+/H+ antiport in the extrusion of protons across the plasma membrane of Plasmodium falciparum has been investigated by using the fluorescent pH probe… (More)
