The human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum is capable of adapting to vastly different extracellular Ca(2+) environments while maintaining tight control of its intracellular Ca(2+) concentration. The mechanisms underpinning Ca(2+) homeostasis in this important pathogen are only partly understood. Here we have functionally expressed the putative(More)
Quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) models have been developed for a data set of 3133 compounds defined as either active or inactive against P. falciparum. Because the data set was strongly biased toward inactive compounds, different sampling approaches were employed to balance the ratio of actives versus inactives, and models were(More)
This research describes the use of novel antimalarial combinations of the new artemisinin derivative artemiside, a 10-alkylamino artemisinin. It is a stable, highly crystalline compound that is economically prepared from dihydroartemisinin in a one-step process. Artemiside activity was more pronounced than that of any antimalarial drug in use, both in(More)
