    Structural ordering of the Plasmodium berghei circumsporozoite protein repeats by inhibitory antibody 3D11

    Iga Kucharska et al.
    A comprehensive structural analysis of inhibitory murine antibody 3D11 binding to Plasmodium berghei circumsporozoite protein reveals common mechanisms of antibody evolution in mammals against Plasmodium parasites.

    Doxycycline has distinct apicoplast-specific mechanisms of antimalarial activity

    Megan Okada et al.
    Doxycycline used at a slightly higher concentration kills Plasmodium falciparum malaria parasites with faster, first-cycle activity through a novel organelle-specific mechanism.

    Lipid hijacking: a unifying theme in vector-borne diseases

    Anya J O'Neal et al.
    A conceptual and unifying framework with a critical appraisal of lipid hijacking by microbes cycling between an arthropod vector and a mammalian host is explored.

    Sex-based differences in clearance of chronic Plasmodium falciparum infection

    Jessica Briggs et al.
    Lower malaria prevalence in females does not appear to be due to lower rates of infection but rather due to faster clearance of asymptomatic infections.

    Collider bias and the apparent protective effect of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency on cerebral malaria

    James A Watson et al.
    Selection bias, also known as collider bias, likely explains the apparent protective effect of G6PD deficiency against cerebral falciparum malaria.

    Artemisinin exposure at the ring or trophozoite stage impacts Plasmodium falciparum sexual conversion differently

    Harvie P Portugaliza et al.
    Treatment of malaria parasites with the frontline antimalarial drug artemisinin can increase the proportion of parasites that convert into transmission forms.

    Full-length Plasmodium falciparum myosin A and essential light chain PfELC structures provide new anti-malarial targets

    Dihia Moussaoui et al.
    The structure of full-length myosin A provides some hints about its atypical mechanism, and reveals that the light chain PfELC is a target to block malaria pathogenesis.

    Metabolic profiling during malaria reveals the role of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor in regulating kidney injury

    Michelle M Lissner et al.
    Illustrating the impact of host metabolism on infection outcome, loss of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor in radioresistant cells leads to heme-mediated kidney toxicity during malaria.

    Phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate and Hsp70 protect Plasmodium falciparum from heat-induced cell death

    Kuan-Yi Lu et al.
    Phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate interacts with PfHsp70-1 and stabilizes the Plasmodium digestive vacuole under febrile temperatures.

    Genome duplication in Leishmania major relies on persistent subtelomeric DNA replication

    Jeziel Dener Damasceno et al.
    Duplication of Leishmania chromosomes combines S-phase DNA replication initiated at a single internal region with subtelomeric DNA replication detectable outside S-phase, potentially explaining genome plasticity in this important parasite.
