Summary This thesis explored the role of PTEX88, a putative component of the malaria translocon involved in trafficking parasite proteins into host red blood cells. Reverse genetic approaches were employed to demonstrate PTEX88 plays an auxiliary role in translocon function but has an impact on parasite virulence and immune evasion.
