MSP1 as an anchor in merozoite invasion
PfMSP-1 sequences upstream of the 19kDa C-terminal region is involved in molecular interactions with other antibody response to the membrane bound C-terminal 19 kDa region
Pellicle formation in the merozoite
Before release, the final step of merozoite development is the assembly of the cortical pellicle, a multilayeredmembrane structure. This unique apicomplexan feature includes the inner membrane compl
Merozoite protein complexes
Secretory organelle-derived proteins (micronemal AMA1 protein and the RON2, 4, and 5 rhoptry neck proteins) havebeen recently described as components of moving junction complex formation allowing mero
Parasitophorous vacuole proteins
Malaria blood stage parasites develop within red blood cells where they are contained in a vacuolar compartmentknown as the parasitophorous vacuole (PV). This compartment holds a key role in the int
Apicoplast putative membrane proteins
The apicoplast is an essential organelle bound by four membranes. Eight apparently essential blood stage genes were identified, three of which were apicoplastlocalised. The P. falciparum orthologs of
Regulators of alternative splicing
Sequence-specific RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) bind to pre-mRNA to control alternative splicing, but it is not yet possible to read the 'splicing code' that dictates splicing regulation on the basis of
Spliceosome dynamics during the catalytic steps
The splicing reaction is completed via two consecutive transesterification reactions on the activated spliceosome. The first step is cleavage at the 5 splice site and formation of the lariat intron–e
As of April 30 2017, you can learn the ins and outs of MPMP through a series of
tutorials that can be reached from the portal of MPMP.
There are 11 tutorials and in going through them, you may discover things you didn't know about MPMP.
Tutorials are best seen in full screen mode.
Enjoy and please comment.
