UTR introns, antisense RNA and differentially spliced transcripts between Plasmodium yoelii subspecies

January 26, 2016 - 19:25 -- Open Access

Malaria Journal 2016 15:30, 20 January 2016

The discoveries of UTR introns and differentially spliced introns between P. yoelii subspecies raise interesting questions on the potential role of these introns in regulating gene expression and evolution of malaria parasites.

NOT Open Access | Dendritic cells subsets mediated immune response during Plasmodium berghei ANKA and Plasmodium yoelii infection

The roles of dendritic cells (DCs) in mediating immunity against Plasmodium infection have been extensively investigated, but immune response during pathogenesis of malaria is still poorly understood.

Regulation of Plasmodium yoelii Oocyst Development by Strain- and Stage-Specific Small-Subunit rRNA

One unique feature of malaria parasites is the differential transcription of structurally distinct rRNA (rRNA) genes at different developmental stages:

Hybridization and pre-zygotic reproductive barriers in Plasmodium

April 11, 2015 - 11:40 -- Open Access
Ramiro RS, Khan SM, Franke-Fayard B, Janse CJ, Obbard DJ, Reece SE
Proc Biol Sci. 2015 May 7;282(1806)

We use the rodent malaria parasites P. berghei and P. yoelii to investigate the ecology of mixed-species mating groups, identify proteins involved in pre-zygotic barriers, and examine their evolution.

Plasmodium remains a major pathogen causing malaria and impairing defense against other infections.

Efficient Editing of Malaria Parasite Genome Using the CRISPR/Cas9 System

September 4, 2014 - 12:06 -- Open Access
Cui Zhang, Bo Xiao, Jing Yuan, et al.
mBio.01414-14 1 July 2014 mBio vol. 5 no. 4 e01414-14

Malaria parasites are unicellular organisms residing inside the red blood cells, and current methods for editing the parasite genes have been inefficient.

Artesunate versus Chloroquine Infection–Treatment–Vaccination Defines Stage-Specific Immune Responses Associated with Prolonged Sterile Protection against Both Pre-erythrocytic and Erythrocytic Plasmodium yoelii Infection

Jian Wu, Linjie Tian, Xin-zhuan Su, et al.
PNAS, January 28, 2014, vol. 111 no. 4

Malaria infection triggers vigorous host immune responses; however, the parasite ligands, host receptors, and the signaling pathways responsible for these reactions remain unknown or controversial.
