Here we report the existence, purification and characterisation of carbonic anhydrase in Plasmodium falciparum. The infected red cells contained carbonic anhydrase approximately 2 times higher than those of normal red cells. The three developmental forms of the asexual stages, ring, trophozoite and schizont were isolated from their host red cells and found to have stage-dependent activity of the carbonic anhydrase. The enzyme was purified to homogeneity from the crude extract of P. falciparum… CONTINUE READING
