Antigens on the Plasmodium falciparum infected erythrocyte surface are parasite derived: a reply.

Abstract:

In this article Chris Newbold and Kevin Marsh describe the evidence for the co-existence of both modified host proteins and of parasite determinants at the infected erythrocyte surface. The stable characteristics of infected cells may in part stem from parasite-induced changes in band 3 molecules, thus explaining some of the cytoadherence properties of uninfected, but abnormal cells (as in sickle-cell disease and diabetes). However, Newbold and Marsh suggest that it is difficult to explain th...
