Functional analysis of the Plasmodium falciparum cGMP-dependent protein kinase

Objectives

Cyclic GMP signaling mediated by the cGMP-dependent protein kinase (PKG) plays important roles in several stages of the malaria parasite life-cycle. This study aims to identify the molecular mechanisms by which PfPKG mediates release of malaria parasites from red blood cells.
