Microvesicles from malaria-infected red blood cells activate natural killer cells via MDA5 pathway
Natural killer (NK) cells provide the first line of defense against malaria parasite infection. However, the molecular mechanisms through which NK cells are activated by parasites are largely unknown, so is the molecular ...
Enhancing the sensitivity of micro magnetic resonance relaxometry detection of low parasitemia Plasmodium falciparum in human blood
Upon Plasmodium falciparum infection of the red blood cells (RBCs), the parasite replicates and consumes haemoglobin resulting in the release of free heme which is rapidly converted to hemozoin crystallites. The bulk ...
Targeted phenotypic screening in plasmodium falciparum and toxoplasma gondii reveals novel modes of action of medicines for malaria venture malaria box molecules
The Malaria Box collection includes 400 chemically diverse small molecules with documented potency against malaria parasite growth, but the underlying modes of action are largely unknown. Using complementary phenotypic ...
