1. Structural Studies of Polyamine Biosynthesis Enzymes: Potential Targets for Drugs against Tropical Parasites
Abstract : Two enzymes involved in the biosynthesis of polyamines, ornithine decarboxylase (ODC, from human and Leishmania donovani) and spermidine synthase (SPDS, from Plasmodium falciparum and Caenorhabditis elegans) were studied using biochemical methods, homology modelling and X-ray crystallography. ODC catalyses the first and committed step in polyamine biosynthesis, the decarboxylation of ornithine to putrescine. READ MORE
