Abstract

Background: The mechanism for selectively targeting membrane proteins to the flagellum of kinetoplastid parasites is unknown. Results: We have identified a novel protein, KHARON1, which is important for the flagellar targeting of a glucose transporter. Conclusion: KHARON1 is the first protein identified in Kinetoplastida that targets a membrane protein to the flagellum. Significance: KHARON1 may be part of a new flagellar targeting pathway.
