Description
  • In the present study, I investigated the underlying basis of Plasmodium falciparum glutamic acid-rich protein (Pf-GARP) function in malaria pathogenesis by examining its direct interaction with human red blood cells (RBCs)/erythrocytes, and its impact on RBC aggregation. We hypothesized that specific region(s) of P. falciparum proteins bind to human RBCs and regulate malaria pathogenic effects ... read more
