Identifying the minimal functional regions of the proteins which the malaria parasite uses when invading its host cells constitutes the first and most important approach in an effective design for a chemically synthesised, multi-antigen, multi-stage, subunit-based vaccine. This work has been aimed at identifying the PfRh1 protein binding regions (residues(More)
The increased resistance of microorganisms to the different antimicrobials available to today has highlighted the need to find new therapeutic agents, including natural and/or synthetic antimicrobial peptides (AMPs). This study has evaluated the antimicrobial activity of synthetic peptide 35409 (RYRRKKKMKKALQYIKLLKE) against Staphylococcus aureus ATCC(More)
Hepatotoxicity is a major cause of pharmaceutical drug attrition and is also a concern within other chemical industries. In silico approaches to the prediction of hepatotoxicity are an important tool in the early identification of adverse effects in the liver associated with exposure to a chemical. Here, we describe work in progress to develop an expert(More)
The most important mechanism for combating infection using larval therapy depends on larval excretions and secretions (ES). The present work was aimed at evaluating Sarconesiopsis magellanica (Diptera: Calliphoridae) ES antibacterial activity in six bacterial strains (three Gram-positive and three Gram-negative) and comparing this to the effect of Lucilia(More)
