During the development of the asexual stage of the malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum, the composition, structure and function of the host cell membrane is dramatically altered, including the ability to adhere to vascular endothelium. Crucial to these changes is the transport of parasite proteins, which become associated with or inserted into the erythrocyte membrane. Protein and membrane targeting beyond the parasite plasma membrane must require unique pathways, given the parasites… CONTINUE READING
