Abstract

Detergent resistant membranes (DRMs) of Plasmodium falciparum merozoites contain a large number of glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored proteins that have been implicated in interactions between merozoites and red blood cells (RBCs). In this study, two cysteine-rich proteins anch...read more
