gly·co·pho·rins

(glī'kō-fōr'inz),
A group of glycoproteins found in erythrocyte membranes; certain glycophorins are associated with blood group antigens; glycophorin A is the major glycophorin; a deficiency of glycophorin C is observed in type 4 hereditary elliptocytosis.

For decades, it has been known that malaria parasites use proteins called glycophorins as a means of entering red blood cells.
The pathway does not involve glycophorins, instead requiring the binding of a parasite molecule named PfRh4 to Complement Receptor 1 (CR1), a common protein found on the surface of red blood cells.
Similarly, they cause the rupture of glycophorins from the erythrocytic surface, easing the activation of the complement and hemolysis [121].
