Hexose Transport in Asexual Stages of Plasmodium falciparum and Kinetoplastidae
The hexose sugar, glucose, is a vital energy source for most organisms and an essential nutrient for asexual stages of Plasmodium falciparum. Kinetoplastid organisms (eg. Trypanosoma and Leishmania spp) also require glucose at certain critical stages of their life cycles. Although phylogenetically unrelated, these organisms share many common challenges during the mammalian stages of a parasitic life cycle, and possess hexose uptake mechanisms that are amenable to study using similar methods....[Show more]
