In this study, we examined the adhesion of DC8- and DC13-expressing parasite lines to endothelial cells from different microvasculature, and the consequences of EPCR engagement on endothelial cell function.

Here we expressed the cysteine-rich interdomain region (CIDRα1) domain from a variety of domain cassette (DC) 8 and DC13 P. falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 proteins and show they interact in a distinct manner with EPCR resulting in weak, moderate and strong inhibition of the activated protein C (APC)-EPCR interaction.

We are reporting here, up-regulation of var group B and C genes whose proteins are predicted to interact with CD36 receptor in the host, the up-regulation of domain cassette 13 (DC13) containing var group A, as also the up-regulation of group A rifins and many of the stevors.
Interestingly, UPs A1, A2, A3 and UPs B1 of var genes were predominantly found in cerebral malaria-associated isolates and those containing architectural domains of DC4, DC5, DC13 and their neighboring rif genes in 3D7-lib.
METHODS: Cytoadherence phenotypes of IEs to CD36, ICAM-1, CSPG and the transcription patterns of A, B, var2csa, var3, var gene groups and domain cassettes DC8 and DC13 were assessed in parasites from children with CM and uncomplicated malaria (UM) to determine if cytoadherence is related to a specific transcription profile of pfemp-1 variants.

Whereas cerebral binding and severe malaria are associated with parasites expressing DC8 and DC13 var genes, relatively little is known about the non-brain endothelial selection on severe malaria adhesive types.

plantarum MF1291, MF1298, DC13, L. pentosus MF1300 and L. salivarius DC5) which were administrated as freeze-dried cultures for 17 volunteers, MF1298 and DC13 were the most frequently reisolated strains in faeces demonstrating the human gastric survival of these strains.
