LanC lantibiotic synthetase component C-like 1

erythrocyte membrane protein 1, LANCL1
This gene encodes a loosely associated peripheral membrane protein related to the LanC family of bacterial membrane-associated proteins involved in the biosynthesis of antimicrobial peptides. This protein may play a role as a peptide-modifying enzyme component in eukaryotic cells. Previously considered a member of the G-protein-coupled receptor superfamily, this protein is now in the LanC family. Multiple alternatively spliced variants, encoding the same protein, have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2008] (from NCBI)

Jensen et al., Copenhagen, Denmark. In Adv Parasitol, Apr 2015
Among several proteins and protein families implicated in this process, the P. falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 (PfEMP1) family of high-molecular weight and highly variable antigens appears to be the most prominent.

The known biological origins of lanthionine and its ketimine metabolite will be described in detail and placed in context with recent discoveries of a GSH- and LK-binding brain protein called LanCL1 that is proving essential for neuronal antioxidant defense; and a related LanCL2 homolog now implicated in immune sensing and cell fate determinations.
Haplotypes of the endothelial protein C receptor (EPCR) gene are not associated with severe malaria in Tanzania.
Lavstsen et al., Copenhagen, Denmark. In Malar J, 2014
BACKGROUND: Endothelial protein C receptor (EPCR) was recently identified as a key receptor for Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 mediating sequestration of P. falciparum-infected erythrocytes in patients suffering from severe malaria.
High-Throughput Testing of Antibody-Dependent Binding Inhibition of Placental Malaria Parasites.
Salanti et al., Copenhagen, Denmark. In Methods Mol Biol, 2014
The cause of both the severity and the diversity of infection outcome, is the ability of the infected erythrocyte (IE) to bind a range of different human receptors through Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 (PfEMP1) on the surface of the infected cell.

Deloron et al., Paris, France. In Expert Opin Biol Ther, 2014
EXPERT OPINION: The approach taken to develop a P. falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1-based vaccine to protect pregnant women is very promising in view of the current difficulties of achieving a sterilizing vaccine against malaria parasite.
