Comparison of PfRON2sp1 and R1 peptides (concentrations 0.2 to 20 µM) in inhibiting red blood cell invasion by P. falciparum 3D7 or HB3 highlights the higher inhibitory efficiency and cross-strain reactivity of PfRON2sp1. Parasitemia of control infected red blood cells (IRBC) 16 hours post-invasion was used as the 100% invasion reference. Means (± SD for N = 3) are shown.
