AuthorsJiang, RH, and Marti M.
AbstractSurvival of blood stage malaria parasites requires extensive host cell remodeling, which is facilitated by secretion of parasite proteins via a dedicated protein export pathway. In a recent Cell paper, Bhattacharjee et al., (2012) describe PI(3)P binding as one of the first steps in targeting parasite proteins to the host cell.
