Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Dose Response orthogonal kinetic assay utilizing the direct detection of NADPH for uHTS small molecule inhibitors of Plasmodium falciparum Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase
Description:  Data Source: Sanford-Burnham Center for Chemical Genomics (SBCCG) Source Affiliation: Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (SBMRI, San Diego CA) Network: NIH Molecular Libraries Probe Production Centers Network (MLPCN) Grant Number: 1R21AI082434-01 Assay Provider: Lars Bode, Ph.D., University of California San Diego, San Diego, CA Tropical malaria caused by the protozoan parasite Plasmodium falciparum is responsible for up to three million deaths annually. Due to increasing regional distribution and resistances against the clinically used antimalarials, novel antimalarial drugs - which have new mechanisms of action and are suitable for combination therapies - are urgently required. Plasmodium falciparum Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (PfGluPho) is a potential novel target for antimalarial drug design. Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6PD) reaction is the first and rate-limiting step in the pentose phosphate pathway (PPP), catalyzed by a bifunctional enzyme Plasmodium fal
