PfAlba1: master regulator of translation in the malaria parasite

Genome Biol. 2015 Oct 8;16:221. doi: 10.1186/s13059-015-0795-x.


During the asexual replication cycle of the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum, the RNA-binding protein PfAlba1 binds and stabilizes a subset of transcripts for translation at a later time point.Please see related Research article:
