Malaria is caused by obligate intracellular parasites, which live in host erythrocytes and remodel these cells to provide optimally for their own needs. Plasmodium falciparum, responsible for malaria in humans, transports many proteins into erythrocytes which help the parasite survive in the host. The recent discovery of a host cell-targeting sequence present in both soluble and transmembrane P. falciparum proteins provoked a discussion on the potential mechanisms of parasite protein entry into… CONTINUE READING
