Feeding channel created by malaria parasite - a new target for malaria treatments

...l, it must get many nutrients-proteins, sugars and precursors for DNA-to survive and grow. While it obtains some of these by digesting the red blood cell's hemoglobin, it must get the rest from outside the cell. The parasite creates tiny channels in the red blood cell membrane, through which it can absorb nutri...
