Evidence for the shikimate pathway in apicomplexan parasites
Parasites of the phylum Apicomplexa cause substantial morbidity, mortality and economic losses, and new medicines to treat them are needed urgently,. The shikimate pathway is an attractive target forExpand

Identification and Initial Characterization of Three Novel Cyclin-related Proteins of the Human Malaria Parasite Plasmodium falciparum*
The molecular mechanisms regulating cell proliferation and development during the life cycle of malaria parasites remain to be elucidated. The peculiarities of the cell cycle organization duringExpand

Chloroplast-derived vaccine antigens confer dual immunity against cholera and malaria by oral or injectable delivery.
Cholera and malaria are major diseases causing high mortality. The only licensed cholera vaccine is expensive; immunity is lost in children within 3 years and adults are not fully protected. NoExpand

Co‐ordinated programme of gene expression during asexual intraerythrocytic development of the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum revealed by microarray analysis
Plasmodium falciparum is a protozoan parasite responsible for the most severe forms of human malaria. All the clinical symptoms and pathological changes seen during human infection are caused by theExpand

The cell cycle in protozoan parasites.
Research into cell cycle control in protozoan parasites, which are responsible for major public health problems in the developing world, has been hampered by the difficulties in performing classicalExpand

Cyclin-dependent kinase homologues of Plasmodium falciparum.
The intraerythrocytic asexual cycle of the malarial parasite is complex and atypical: during schizogony the parasite undergoes multiple rounds of DNA replication and asynchronous nuclear divisionExpand

PfPK7, an atypical MEK‐related protein kinase, reflects the absence of classical three‐component MAPK pathways in the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum
Two members of the mitogen‐activated protein kinase (MAPK) family have been previously characterized in Plasmodium falciparum, but in vitro attempts at identifying MAP kinase kinase (MAPKK)Expand

Characterization of a PRL protein tyrosine phosphatase from Plasmodium falciparum.
Isoprenylated proteins have important functions in cell growth and differentiation of eukaryotic cells. Inhibitors of protein prenylation in malaria have recently shown strong promise as effectiveExpand

Activation of a Plasmodium falciparum cdc2-related Kinase by Heterologous p25 and Cyclin H
Several Plasmodium falciparum genes encoding cdc2-related protein kinases have been identified, but the modalities of their regulation remains largely unexplored. In the present study, weExpand

PfPK6, a novel cyclin-dependent kinase/mitogen-activated protein kinase-related protein kinase from Plasmodium falciparum.
We have isolated a novel protein kinase cDNA, PfPK6, by differential display RT-PCR (DDRT-PCR) of mRNA obtained from different asexual erythrocytic stages of Plasmodium falciparum, which showsExpand
