Plasmodium falciparum-infected erythrocytes were metabolically labeled with tritiated glucosamine. Lipid extracts were analyzed by high-performance thin-layer chromatography to compare labeled molecules of eleven isolates from patients, six cytoadherent in vitro strains, and two knobbed and two knobless strains from Aotus monkeys. Up to nineteen labeled bands were identified. Glycolipid GL1, previously identified in Malayan Camp, was present in all isolates and strains. Other molecules, betwe...Expand abstract
