Cytoadherence, pathogenesis and the infected red cell surface in Plasmodium falciparum.

Abstract:

The particular virulence of Plasmodium falciparum compared with the other malaria species which naturally infect humans is thought to be due to the way in which the parasite modifies the surface of the infected red cell. Approximately 16 hours into the asexual cycle, parasite encoded proteins appear on the red cell surface which mediate adherence to a variety of host tissues. Binding of infected red cells to vascular endothelium, a process which occurs in all infections, is thought to be an i...
