Plasmodium vivax merozoite surface protein 1 paralog as a mediator of parasite adherence to reticulocytes

Abstract:

Plasmodium vivax parasites preferentially invade reticulocytes in human beings. P. vivax merozoite surface protein 1 (PvMSP1) and PvMSP1 paralog (PvMSP1P) may have important functions in reticulocyte adherence during invasion. These proteins share similar structures, including the presence of two epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like and glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored domains at the C-terminus. However, there have been no reports concerning the functional activity of PvMSP1P in reti...
