    Developing a multivariate prediction model of antibody features associated with protection of malaria-infected pregnant women from placental malaria

    Elizabeth H Aitken et al.
    Machine learning identified six protective antibody features and showed for the first time that serological markers can predict protection from placental-malaria, which is important for evaluation and development of vaccines.

    Plasmodium-infected erythrocytes induce secretion of IGFBP7 to form type II rosettes and escape phagocytosis

    Wenn-Chyau Lee et al.
    Plasmodium parasites use host-derived factors to form more rosettes and hamper phagocytosis, representing a new escape mechanism for the malaria parasites.

    NK cells inhibit Plasmodium falciparum growth in red blood cells via antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity

    Gunjan Arora et al.
    Red blood cells infected by the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum are destroyed by human natural killer cells in the presence of antibodies from people who have acquired clinical immunity to malaria.

    One reporter for in-cell activity profiling of majority of protein kinase oncogenes

    Iva Gudernova et al.
    A new luciferase and fluorescent reporter system enables rapid and efficient in-cell profiling of the majority of protein kinase oncogenes known to date.

    Evolution of alternative biosynthetic pathways for vitamin C following plastid acquisition in photosynthetic eukaryotes

    Glen Wheeler et al.
    Genomic evidence suggests that L-gulonolactone oxidase-the terminal enzyme in vitamin C synthesis, which has been repeatedly lost throughout animal evolution-was lost in plants and other photosynthetic eukaryotes following plastid acquisition.

    Common virulence gene expression in adult first-time infected malaria patients and severe cases

    J Stephan Wichers et al.
    Parasites with pathogenic variant surface antigens are common in adult malaria patients with a naive immune status.

    1. Cell Biology

    Single-cell RNA-seq reveals hidden transcriptional variation in malaria parasites

    Adam J Reid et al.
    Plasmodium parasite transcription shifts dramatically along asexual development, and transmission stages variably express important immune evasion genes, suggesting much interesting biology has until now been hidden by bulk analyses.

    Genome-wide regulatory dynamics of translation in the Plasmodium falciparum asexual blood stages

    Florence Caro et al.
    Ribosome profiling has bridged the knowledge gap between transcription and translation during malaria blood stage development and provided a comprehensive gene expression resource for this parasite.

    The antigenic switching network of Plasmodium falciparum and its implications for the immuno-epidemiology of malaria

    Robert Noble et al.
    The first comprehensive analysis of antigenic switching in the malaria-causing parasite Plasmodium falciparum provides new insights into the process that prevents individuals from acquiring immunity to the disease.
