We screened a natural product library to identify inhibitors of Plasmodium falciparum blood- and liver-stage proliferation. Cladosporin, a fungal secondary metabolite whose(More)
The metS gene encoding homodimeric methionyl-tRNA synthetase from Bacillus stearothermophilus has been cloned and a 2880 base pair sequence solved. Comparison of the deduced enzyme protomer sequence (Mr 74,355) with that of the E. coli methionyl-tRNA synthetase protomer (Mr 76,124) revealed a relatively low level (32%) of identities, although both enzymes(More)
