This study is the first report on mortality of Spheniscus magellanicus, penguin of South America, caused by Plasmodium tejerai, which was identified using morphological and molecular analyses.
This study investigated the frequency of the FYES allele and P. vivax infections in malaria patients with the goal of uncovering factors for the lack of P. vivax infections reported in Haiti.
In this study, design of PCR programmes with suitable parameters and optimization resulted in simpler and faster single-round amplification assays.
Using the uncharacterized phosducin-like protein from Plasmodium berghei PhLP-1, we investigated the evolution of PhLP proteins across all branches of the tree of life. As a result of our analysis, we have discovered the presence of two additional PhLP proteins in Plasmodium, PhLP-2 and PhLP-3. Sequence homology with annotated PhLP proteins in other species confirms that the Plasmodium PhLP-2 and PhLP-3 belong to the PhLP family of proteins.
Herein, we review the genetic alterations associated with erythrocytes or mediators of the immune system, which might influence malaria outcome.
To further investigate the InsPx metabolism in these parasites a Plasmodium protein possessing inositol phosphate kinase (IPK) activity was recombinantly expressed, purified and enzymatically characterized for the first time
We reveal a novel form of host–parasite coevolution that enables parasites to evade host immune responses that negatively impact upon fertility.
Intraerythrocytic malaria parasites send hundreds of effector proteins into the host cell
Plasmodium parasites multiply within host erythrocytes, which contain high levels of iron, and parasite egress from these cells results in iron release and host anemia.
