  • 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
