    The malaria parasite sheddase SUB2 governs host red blood cell membrane sealing at invasion

    Christine R Collins et al.
    Genetic analysis identifies an enzyme of the malaria parasite that is required to seal its host red blood cell membrane upon invasion, a key requirement of this important intracellular pathogen.

    Non-invasive imaging of CSF-mediated brain clearance pathways via assessment of perivascular fluid movement with diffusion tensor MRI

    Ian F Harrison et al.
    The first non-invasive technique to assess the action of brain clearance mechanisms, driven by the perivascular inflow of cerebrospinal fluid, has been developed using magnetic resonance imaging.

    An essential dual-function complex mediates erythrocyte invasion and channel-mediated nutrient uptake in malaria parasites

    Daisuke Ito et al.
    Gene knockdowns reveal that the conserved RhopH protein complex functions in both host cell invasion and channel-mediated nutrient uptake in malaria.

    p27Kip1 promotes invadopodia turnover and invasion through the regulation of the PAK1/Cortactin pathway

    Pauline Jeannot et al.
    p27Kip1 directly controls invadopodia turnover by promoting the interaction of PAK1 with Cortactin, which induces Cortactin phosphorylation, invadopodia disassembly and facilitates invasion through extracellular matrix.

    G-protein-coupled receptor signaling and polarized actin dynamics drive cell-in-cell invasion

    Vladimir Purvanov et al.
    siRNA knockdown experiments reveal in detail the signaling pathway that controls cytoskeletal function during cell-in-cell invasion.

    A druggable secretory protein maturase of Toxoplasma essential for invasion and egress

    Sunil Kumar Dogga et al.
    An aspartyl protease is essential for the lytic cycle of Toxoplasma gondii and is involved in the maturation of proteins critical for invasion and egress, and it can be targeted selectively with an ethylamine scaffold based peptidomimetic inhibitor.

    Structural basis for inhibition of erythrocyte invasion by antibodies to Plasmodium falciparum protein CyRPA

    Lin Chen et al.
    The crystal structures of the key vaccine candidate CyRPA alone and in complex with antibody Fab fragment was solved and this will be important information for designing a vaccine.

    Shed EBA-175 mediates red blood cell clustering that enhances malaria parasite growth and enables immune evasion

    May M Paing et al.
    Plasmodium falciparum invasion protein EBA-175, once shed from the parasite surface post invasion, facilitates RBC clustering and enhances parasite growth while simultaneously enabling parasite immune evasion of host neutralizing antibodies.

    Structure of the malaria vaccine candidate antigen CyRPA and its complex with a parasite invasion inhibitory antibody

    Paola Favuzza et al.
    The structure of the promising malaria blood-stage vaccine candidate antigen PfCyRPA and the characterization of a protective epitope are facilitating research on its essential role in parasite invasion, and will guide future epitope-focused vaccine design.

    Individual recognition and the ‘face inversion effect’ in medaka fish (Oryzias latipes)

    Mu-Yun Wang, Hideaki Takeuchi
    Medaka fish were able to use faces for individual recognition, and were slower to recognise inverted faces but not inverted non-face shapes.
