  • Crystal structure of the aquaglyceroporin PfAQP from the malarial parasite Plasmodium falciparum. Newby, Zachary E. R.; O'Connell III, Joseph; Robles-Colmenares, Yaneth; Khademi, Shahram; Miercke, Larry J.; Stroud, Robert M. // Nature Structural & Molecular Biology;Jun2008, Vol. 15 Issue 6, p619 

    The 2.05-Ã… resolution structure of the aquaglyceroporin from the malarial parasite Plasmodium falciparum (PfAQP), a protein important in the parasite's life cycle, has been solved. The structure provides key evidence for the basis of water versus glycerol selectivity in aquaporin family...

    Background: Aquaporins are a large family of transmembrane channel proteins that are present throughout all domains of life and are implicated in human disorders. These channels, allow the passive but selective movement of water and other small neutral solutes across cell membranes. Aquaporins...

    Background: The ability of the human malarial parasite Plasmodium falciparum to invade, colonise and multiply within diverse host environments, as well as to manifest its virulence within the human host, are activities tightly linked to the temporal and spatial control of gene expression. Yet,...

    Background: Severe malaria has been attributed to the expression of a restricted subset of the var multi-gene family, which encodes for Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 (PfEMP1). PfEMP1 mediates cytoadherence and sequestration of infected erythrocytes into the post-capillary...

    Background: Plasmodium falciparum is responsible for most malaria cases on Mayotte Island, in the Comorian Archipelago. Malaria is endemic and a major public health problem in the archipelago with an intense, stable and permanent transmission. This study reports results of 8 years of malaria...

  • Plasmodium falciparum coronin organizes arrays of parallel actin filaments potentially guiding directional motility in invasive malaria parasites. Olshina, Maya A.; Angrisano, Fiona; Marapana, Danushka S.; Riglar, David T.; Bane, Kartik; Wong, Wilson; Catimel, Bruno; Meng-Xin Yin; Holmes, Andrew B.; Frischknecht, Friedrich; Kovar, David R.; Baum, Jake // Malaria Journal;Jul2015, Vol. 14 Issue 1, p1 

    Background: Gliding motility in Plasmodium parasites, the aetiological agents of malaria disease, is mediated by an actomyosin motor anchored in the outer pellicle of the motile cell. Effective motility is dependent on a parasite myosin motor and turnover of dynamic parasite actin filaments. To...

    Several species have genomes in which the four nucleotides are not equally represented (Glöckner 2000). Interestingly, shifts to very high A/T or G/C levels can occur in several distinct branches of the tree of life. The underlying reasons for these shifts therefore may be of different...

  • Prediction of hydrophobic regions effectively in transmembrane proteins using digital filter. Meher, Jayakishan; Raval, Mukesh Kumar; Dash, Gananath; Meher, Pramod Kumar // Journal of Biomedical Science & Engineering;Aug2011, Vol. 4 Issue 8, p562 

    The hydrophobic effect is the major factor that drives a protein molecule towards folding and to a great degree the stability of protein structures. Therefore the knowledge of hydrophobic regions and its prediction is of great help in understanding the structure and function of the protein....
