Abstract

The human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum increases red blood cell membrane permeability during infection to allow for import of nutrients and other solutes. Nguitragool et al. (2011) have now identified parasite-encoded CLAG3 proteins as key components of the import channel located on the erythrocyte membrane.
