Abstract

Py235 rhoptry proteins, encoded by a multigene family of the rodent malaria parasite Plasmodium yoelii, combine a functional role in invasion with one of immune evasion, and have homologues in malaria parasites of humans. Investigations of Py235 are summarised and the perspectives for dissecting the molecular and biological mechanisms underlying these crucial phenomena are discussed.
