Glycophorin C (CD236R) mediates vivax malaria parasite rosetting to normocytes

Abstract:

Rosetting phenomenon has been linked to malaria pathogenesis. Although rosetting occurs in all causes of human malaria, most data on this subject has been derived from Plasmodium falciparum. Here, we investigate the function and factors affecting rosette formation inPlasmodium vivax. To achieve this, we used a range of novel ex vivo protocols to study fresh and cryopreservedPvivax(n5135) andP falciparum(n577) isolates from Thailand. Rosetting is more common in vivax than falciparum malaria, b...
