Plasmodium permeomics: membrane transport proteins in the malaria parasite.
Membrane transport proteins are integral membrane proteins that mediate the passage across the membrane bilayer of specific molecules and/or ions. Such proteins serve a diverse range of physiological roles, mediating the uptake of nutrients into cells, the removal of metabolic wastes and xenobiotics (including drugs), and the generation and maintenance of transmembrane electrochemical gradients. In this chapter we review the present state of knowledge of the membrane transport mechanisms...[Show more]
