Membrane transport proteins of the malaria parasite

Martin, Rowena; Ginsburg, Hagai; Kirk, Kiaran

Description

The malaria parasite-infected erythrocyte is a multi-compartment structure, incorporating numerous different membrane systems. The movement of nutrients, metabolites and inorganic ions into and out of the intraerythrocytic parasite, as well as between subcellular compartments within the parasite, is mediated by transporters and channels - integral membrane proteins that facilitate the movement of solutes across the membrane bilayer. Proteins of this type also play a key role in antimalarial...[Show more]
