Calcium-dependent protein kinases play a pivotal role in calcium signalling in plants and some protozoa, including the malaria parasites. They are found in various subcellular locations, suggesting an involvement in multiple signal transduction pathways. Recently, Plasmodium falciparum calcium-dependent protein kinase 1 (PfCDPK1) has been found in the… CONTINUE READING
