Abstract

Almost all of the important enzymes of glycolytic sequence were studied in isolated schizonts of Plasmodium knowlesi as well as in normal and P. knowlesi parasitized rhesus red blood cells. Significant activities of all the glycolytic enzymes assayed were observed in cell-free schizonts and the levels of all were found to be considerably elevated in infected host erythrocytes, confirming that the consumption of glucose is dramatically increased in host red cells, consequent to malaria infection.
