SponsorsThe project was supported by a faculty baseline fund (BAS/1/1020-01-01) from the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) to AP. The authors thank the staff of the Bioscience Core Laboratory in KAUST for FACS assays and Fathia Ben Rached and Zenaida Stead for helping with the ring-stage survival assays. The P. falciparum NF54 strain used in this study was a kind gift from Frederic Ariey from INSERM 1016, Institut Cochin, Paris, France. We also acknowledge Dr. Mohammed Almohammadi, Dr. Farzal Anwar, Abdullah Mohammed Algarni, and Sahal Alawi Jamalallail from the blood transfusion center associated with King Abdullah International Medical Research Center (KAIMRC) for supplying us RBCs to support malaria culture work.
