Measuring hidden parasites in falciparum malaria

...died. This finding fits with current thinking that sequestration of red cells containing the mature forms of the parasite is the most important pathological process in falciparum malaria. Approximately 40% of the world's population, mostly living in the world's poorest countries, is at risk of malaria. In the tr...

But a defect in ER trafficking caused by alpha-synuclein accumulation could cause the toxic buildup of dopamine to occur in these neurons."

Nonvenomous Asian snakes 'borrow' defensive poison from toxic toads

...he PNAS paper, she and co-authors describe dietary sequestration of toxins by the snakes. The process allows the snakes to store toxins from the toads in their neck glands. When under attack, the snakes re-release the poisons from these neck glands. Many invertebrates sequester dietary toxins for use in defense...
