Plasmodium falciparum: variations within the C-terminal region of merozoite surface antigen-1.

Abstract

Sequence variations at the 3'-end of the Plasmodium falciparum merozoite surface antigen-1 gene show that the C-terminus of the protein may not be as conserved as has been assumed in the past. We have therefore examined the sequences of the 3' terminal 2 kb, i.e., blocks 12-17 of four isolates, RO-33, RO-71, 3D7A, and FCH5. We discuss different mechanisms… (More)
