Plasmodium falciparum antigen 332 is a resident peripheral membrane protein of Maurer's clefts

PloS One

Sandra NilssonKirsten Moll

Abstract

During the intraerythrocytic development of Plasmodium falciparum, the malaria parasite remodels the host cell cytosol by inducing membranous structures termed Maurer's clefts and inserting parasite proteins into the red blood cell cytoskeleton and plasma membrane. Pf332 is the largest ...read more

Cytoskeleton in Protein Localization

The cytoskeleton is composed of three main proteins that help maintain cell structures. Localization of proteins is crucial for understanding how proteins function within a cell. Here is the latest research on the cytoskeleton in protein localization.

Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a viral respiratory disease of zoonotic origin caused by the SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV). Initial symptoms are flu-like and may include fever, muscle pain, lethargy symptoms, cough, sore throat, and other nonspecific symptoms. SARS may eventually lead to shortness of breath and pneumonia; either direct viral pneumonia or secondary bacterial pneumonia. DIscover the latest research on SARS here.
