Membrane Transport in the Malaria-Infected Erythrocyte

Kirk, Kiaran


The malaria parasite is a unicellular eukaryotic organism which, during the course of its complex life cycle, invades the red blood cells of its vertebrate host. As it grows multiplies within its host blood cell, the parasite modifies the membrane permeability cytosolic composition of the host cell. The intracellular parasite is enclosed within a so-called parasitophorous vacuolar membrane, tubular extensions of which radiate out into the host cell compartment. Like all eukaryote cells, the...[Show more]
