We have identified a putative protein kinase gene from both Plasmodium falciparum cDNA and genomic DNA libraries. The nucleotide sequence contains an open-reading frame of 2646 bp, which codes for a predicted protein of 882 amino acid residues. Comparison of the predicted amino acid sequence with those in GenBank suggests that this gene codes for a protein similar to the mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase of other organisms. This MAP kinase-related protein, named PfMRP, contains the TDY… CONTINUE READING
