MalariaWorldThe evolution of different members of the Pvrbp2 family and their relatively high degree of polymorphism suggests that the proteins encoded by these genes are important for parasite survival and are under immune selection.

MalariaWorldPlasmodium falciparum SURFIN4.2 (PFD1160w) is a polymorphic protein expressed on the surface of parasite-infected erythrocytes. Such molecules are expected to be under strong host immune pressure, thus we analyzed the nucleotide diversity of the N-terminal extracellular region of SURFIN4.2 using P. falciparum isolates obtained from a malaria hypoendemic area of Thailand.
