Hemozoin-free Plasmodium falciparum mitochondria for physiological and drug susceptibility studies.


Isolation of mitochondria of high purity and with intact enzymatic activities from malaria parasites has proven to be a major obstacle in characterizing the parasite mitochondrial physiology. We describe here an improved procedure for the isolation of a mitochondrially enriched preparation from the trophozoite stage of erythrocytic Plasmodium falciparum… (More)
