As a consequence of gene cloning and DNA sequencing several gene families are emerging in the field of cell-cell recognition. These include immunoglobulins, integrins, certain extracellular glycoproteins and a family of functionally unrelated proteins which include factor B. We report here the cloning and sequencing of a gene from Plasmodium falciparum, coding for a protein we call thrombospondin related anonymous protein (TRAP), which shares certain sequence motifs common to other well-chara...Expand abstract
