Objectives: An obligatory step during Plasmodium infection is the invasion of host hepatocytes and subsequent intracellular development of the parasite. The molecular mechanisms and the host contribution to Plasmodium liver infection remain largely unknown even though this stage is the most appealing[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
