Plasmodium parasites express a potent inhibitor of cysteine proteases (ICP) throughout their life cycle.

Not Open Access | Antimitotic herbicides bind to an unidentified site on malarial parasite tubulin and block development of liver-stage Plasmodium parasites

May 17, 2013 - 16:46 -- NOT Open Access
Enda Dempsey, Miguel Prudêncio, Brian J. Fennell, Carina S. Gomes-Santos, James W. Barlow, Angus Bell
Molecular and Biochemical Parasitology, Volume 188, Issue 2, April 2013, Pages 116-127


We conclude that the herbicides impair Plasmodium liver stage as well as blood stage development but that the location of their binding site on malarial parasite tubulin remains to be proven.
