  • Malaria Chloroquine Resistance Transporter Malaria is one of the most deadly infectious diseases in the world today, and the emergence and spread of chloroquine-resistant parasites has been a disaster for world health. The Chloroquine Resistance Transporter (PfCRT) was originally identified because mutations in this protein confer chloroquine resistance in the human malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum. However, the mechanism by which they do so has been the subject of ongoing debate. Martin… CONTINUE READING
