Observed octameric assembly of a Plasmodium yoelii peroxiredoxin can be explained by the replacement of native "ball-and-socket" interacting residues by an affinity tag.

Abstract

Peroxiredoxins (Prxs) are ubiquitous and efficient antioxidant enzymes crucial for redox homeostasis in most organisms, and are of special importance for disease-causing parasites that must protect themselves against the oxidative weapons of the human immune system. Here, we describe reanalyses of crystal structures of two Prxs from malaria parasites. In… (More)
