Host cell invasion by malarial parasites

Host cell invasion by malarial parasites

Cellular interactions in symbiosis and parasitism: 31-46

The mechanism by which Plasmodium invades erythrocytes is discussed with reference to: (i) recognition and initial attachment; (ii) invagination of the host cell membrane; (iii) sealing of the host cell membrane following completion of merozoite entry; (iv) alterations of the host cell membrane after invasion. The merozoites enter erythrocytes by endocytosis during which a distinct junction between the parasite and erythrocyte membranes is formed.
