Malaria parasites remodel erythrocytes for their survival. They passage proteins into the host cell via an export machinery known as PTEX. For the first time, this study shows that different types of parasite-exported proteins use PTEX. Importantly, new drugs can be developed which target PTEX components to eliminate an infection.
