GPR89A

A gene on chromosome 1q21.1 that encodes a G protein-coupled, voltage-dependent anion channel virtually identical to the GPR89B protein product, which is required for acidification and functions of the Golgi apparatus that may play a role in counter-ion conductance.

Pinpointing at the details of the signal that enables parasites to quickly boost their numbers, scientists said that these small molecules, known as oligopeptides, are sensed by a protein, called GPR89. It is found on the surface of the parasite.
The team suggested that disrupting this process by designing drugs that interfere with the GPR89 protein could offer a new way of tackling the disease and this approach could limit drug resistance.
