Abstract

Transport of nutrients into animal cells is driven by transmembrane gradient of Na across the plasma membrane. The protozoan malaria parasite, , however, grows within the host human erythrocytes, in which the cytoplasmic concentration of Na is maintained low by the membrane Na, K-ATPase. Our experiments show that human erythrocytes enriched with Na by treatment with ouabain (an inhibitor of the ATPase) will support the growth of in culture.
