From: Sequence similarity between the erythrocyte binding domain of the Plasmodium vivax Duffy binding protein and the V3 loop of HIV-1 strain MN reveals a functional heparin binding motif involved in binding to the Duffy antigen receptor for chemokines

Figure 8

PvRII binding to heparitinase treated DARC+ erythrocytes. DARC+ human erythrocytes were digested with heparitinase I, an endoglycosidase specific for heparan sulfate. The number of rosettes of heparitinase-treated erythrocytes on COS-7 cells transfected with the pvRII expression vector, pHVDR22, is shown as the mean of three separate treatments.
