Technical Data
P4256-71C
Plasmodium falciparum, HRP2 (Malaria)
Description:
Plasmodium falciparum histidine rich protein-2 is a 33kD member of the histidine rich protein family found in the malaria parasite. Histidine rich protein-2 is secreted by Plasmodium falciparum into the host erythrocyte cytosol and is expressed on the cell membrane or associated with the cytoskeleton of infected erythrocytes. Histidine rich protein-2 is thought to polymerise free haem to form haemozoin. It is also thought to play a role in the polymerisation of ferriprotoporphyrin IX, a by-product of haemoglobin degradation.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA and Lateral Flow. Other applications not tested.
