Lack of plasmodium surface-protein blocks mosquito infection

Science Daily - Malaria - November 9, 2016 - 18:38
A previously unknown feature of the malaria parasite development has just been released by an international research team. Their study has shown that, contrary to what has been assumed so far, a Plasmodium surface-protein plays an essential role at a stage of its life cycle that occurs not in the body of the host, but in the guts of the Anopheles mosquito. The finding has consequences for the search for vaccines or drugs that could alleviate the suffering caused by malaria. By 2015, 214 million people were affected by the parasite, especially in Africa.
