Malaria-infected erythrocytes acquired New Permeability Pathways (NPPs) to meet the needs in nutrients and
disposal of waste products of the intraerythocytic parasite development. The NPPs have been intensively studied for their
putative interest as therapeutic targets for malaria treatment. Over the past 10 years, many electrophysiological studies
have identified novel ion conductances (reflecting a part of the NPPs activities) in the host plasma membrane of
Plasmodium falciparum-infected erythrocytes. In this article, we review the electrophysiological/biophysical properties of
the malaria-induced outwardly rectifying anion conductance and compare this conductance to the other anion
conductances and permeabilities already described in the literature.
