The human malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum, has as its only glycoconjugate GPI anchors. These structures, present in essentially all parasite surface proteins, are associated with disease pathology. In contrast, the parasite depends for essential recognition events on saccharides associated with host cell glycoproteins and proteoglycans.
