Parasites by their very nature must efficiently scavenge nutrients from the host that they infect. Transporters are proteins that facilitate the uptake of nutrients across biological membranes. Apicomplexans are a phylum of intracellular parasites that include Plasmodium spp, the causative agents of malaria, and Toxoplasma gondii, the causative agent of toxoplasmosis. Despite the critical role that transporters must play in the biology of these parasites, only a small number have been...[Show more]
