Malaria Journal 2016 15:529, 4 November 2016

For Plasmodium falciparum, antibodies against LSA3.RE, GLURP and Pf.GLURP.R2 are most likely to be a reflexion of recent (range from 6 to 8 months) exposure in the Mekong Subregion.

The four main Plasmodium species that cause human malaria, Plasmodium falciparum, Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium malariae, and Plasmodium ovale, are transmitted between humans by mosquito vectors belonging to the genus Anopheles.

Improving N-terminal protein annotation of Plasmodium species based on signal peptide prediction of orthologous proteins

Menezes de Neto A, Alvarenga DA, Rezende AM, Resende SS, Souza deRibeiro R, Fontes CJ, Carvalho LH, Alves de Brito CF
Malaria Journal 2012, 11:375 (15 November 2012)

The methodological novelty proposed here combining orthology and signal peptide prediction proved to be an effective strategy for the identification of proteins showing wrongly N-terminal annotated sequences, and it might have an important impact in the available data for genome-wide searching of potential vaccine and drug targets and proteins involved in host/parasite interactions, as demonstrated for five Plasmodium species.
