EBA-175, erythrocyte binding antigen 175, is a 175-kDa antigen of Plasmodium falciparum which has been shown to be involved in the recognition of erythrocytes by merozoites and may be involved in the process of erythrocyte invasion. Invasion of erythrocytes by Camp strain merozoites is inhibited by pre-treatment of red blood cells by EBA-175 from the heterologous strain, FCR-3. The sequence of the Camp strain has been published and we report here the sequence of the FCR-3 strain. The sequences… CONTINUE READING
