[…] f P. vivax-infected reticulocytes [,], indicates that this species, similar to P. falciparum, can cytoadhere. We thus computationally searched for other putative adhesins within members of VIR, PIRA, PIRD, and PIRH proteins using the MAAP predictor [] (see “Methods”). Interestingly, only members representing subfamilies C and E as well as H proteins presented positive predictions. Thus, 39% (12/31 […]
