Disease relevance of PFL0735w


High impact information on PFL0735w

  • The three-dimensional structure of a Plasmodium falciparum cyclophilin in complex with the potent anti-malarial cyclosporin A [3].
  • The two analogs that were most active in inhibiting C. parvum, SDZ PSC-833 and SDZ 033-243, bind weakly to cyclophilin, a peptidyl proline isomerase which is the primary target of cyclosporine and CS analogs [4].
  • Here we report that cyclosporin A (CsA), an inhibitor of parasitic cyclophilin (Cyp) and protein phosphatase 2B (calcineurin, CN), acted synergistically with GA to inhibit the erythrocytic growth of the parasite [5].
  • A possible explanation is that the antimalarial effect of CLA and analogues may result from their influence on cell membranes rather than on some specific receptor such as cyclophilin [6].
