Another angle to tackle malaria

Our malaria testing collaborator in the news:

"Our findings have the potential to be very significant on several fronts," said Lawrence W. Bergman, Ph.D., Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Drexel University College of Medicine.

"Having determined the atomic structure of a key motor complex that is absolutely required for the parasite to enter cells, we can begin a process called structure-guided drug design," Bergman added.

What is the microbial-receptor combination? Has there been anything further done on it. I wonder how quickly they can move on it. I know that researchers have known about the GP120-CD4 link with HIV and that has not gone quickly.

No we have not done anything else on that. We are mainly focussed on the enoyl reductase inhibitors right now.
