The Role of Neddylation in Malaria Parasites.

Plasmodium parasites, the causative agents of malaria, rely on sophisticated cellular mechanisms to survive and proliferate within their hosts. Plasmodium complex life cycle requires posttranslational modifications (PTMs) to control cellular activities. Neddylation is a type of PTM in which NEDD8 is covalently attached to target proteins and plays an important role in cell cycle control and metabolism. Covalent attachment to its substrates requires the Nedd8-activating enzyme, E1; the NEDD8-conjugating enzyme, E2; and the ligase, E3. In Plasmodium , protein neddylation is essential for parasite development during the stage I-II transition from zygote to ookinete differentiation and malaria transmission. Here, we discuss the current understanding of protein neddylation in Plasmodium, which is involved in malaria transmission.
