Targeting Nutrient Uptake Mechanisms in Plasmodium

Kirk, Kiaran; Saliba, Kevin


The proliferation of the intraerythrocytic malaria parasite is dependent on the uptake from the blood plasma, and from the cytoplasm of the host cell, of a range of essential nutrients. These compounds are taken up into the parasitised cell via a combination of constitutively active endogenous host cell transporters and new parasite-induced permeability pathways.
