  • Product Information
    Plasmodium falciparum chitinase (PfCHT1) is thought to have a role in parasite transmission by acting on the chitin-containing peritrophic membrane of the mosquito vector's bloodmeal to release the ookinetes (1, 2). Inhibition of chitinase activity in the mosquito midgut with allosamidin, a chitinase inhibitor, blocks parasitic transmission (3).

    Product Source

    Isolated from E. coli cells carrying a plasmid with the PfCHT1 gene cloned from Plasmodium falciparum (kindly provided by J. Vinetz) (1).
