- ... The presence of foreign contamination, especially of mycoplasmas, is a major hindrance in long term in vitro cultivation of Plasmodium falciparum and may be a source of false-positive results. Efforts have been made to control mycoplasma contamination by trypsinization of P. falciparum culture. Samples of accidentally contaminated cultures were used for this study. The presence of Mycoplasma orale ...

- ... Inhibition of growth of the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum by known translation-inhibitory antibiotics has generated interest in understanding their action on the translation apparatus of the two genome containing organelles of the malaria parasite: the mitochondrion and the relic plastid (apicoplast). We report GTPase activity of recombinant EF-G proteins that are targeted to the organell ...
