The mechanism for erythrocyte to accept malaria parasite invasion and to allow releasing daughter parasite



The mechanism for erythrocyte to accept malaria parasite invasion and to allow releasing daughter parasite



Membrane 30(2): 84-90



Malaria is an infectious disease caused by protozoan parasite, Plasmodium. It is estimated that 300-500 million people are infected with the malaria parasite, out of which 1.5-2.7 million die every year worldwide. There are four species of the Plasmodium that infect humans; Plasmodium falciparum, P. vivax, P. malariae and P. ovale. The infective stage of Plasmodium, sporozoite is transmitted into humans by the bite of infective female Anopheles mosquito.
