Recent progress in the understanding of the cellular, biochemical and molecular aspects of human red blood cell invasion by Plasmodium falciparum merozoites has come from the suggestion that the red cell sialoglycoproteins, glycophorins A, B and C, may represent receptors of invasion, a hypothesis which has extensively been reviewed [1, 2, 4, 9]. Most recently we have, however, discovered that isolated glycophorin A (GpA) exhibits a toxic effect on the intraerythrocytic growth of Plasmodium falciparum in vitro [5, 6], which has prompted us to revise the current view [3].
