Susceptibility of Plasmodium falciparum cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase and its mammalian homologue to the inhibitors.


Cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase (protein kinase A, PKA) is a key element in many cell signaling pathways. An essential role of Plasmodium falciparum PKA (PfPKA) activity was reported in the intraerythrocytic growth of the malaria parasite. However, molecular characterization of PfPKA using purified recombinant proteins has not yet been performed. Here… (More)
