Proposed scenarios for how EhROM1 regulates parasite adhesion. EhROM1 may process an unknown adhesin (a) or a different substrate that masks the Gal/GalNAc lectin adhesion (b) or EhROM1 may play a role in signaling during the adhesion process by detaching the signaling integrin-like motif present in the cytoplasmic domain from the rest of the Gal/GalNAc lectin (c).
