The malarial CDK Pfmrk and its effector PfMAT1 phosphorylate DNA replication proteins and co-localize in the nucleus.


Cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) have an established role in metazoans and yeast in DNA replication, transcription and cell cycle regulation. Several CDKs and their effectors have been identified in the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum and their biological functions are beginning to be investigated. Here we report results from the functional… (More)
