Sea Cucumber Protein Used to Inhibit Development of Malaria Parasite

According to an article on the Science Daily website, scientists have been able to genetically engineer a mosquito that is able to release a protein found in sea cucumbers that may help impair the development of parasites known to cause malaria. The said research states that this new development may be the next step towards discovering new methods in trying to prevent the eventual transmission of malaria by mosquitoes. An international team of scientists which included Professor Bob Sinden from …
