Guide to Malaria Pharmacology Comments
A chemical rescue screen of compounds in the MMV Malaria Box identified MMV008138 as having specific activity against the P. falciparum apicoplast [1]. A further study provided evidence that the mechanism of action of MMV008138 is by inhibition of IspD, an enzyme in the non-mevalonate (MEP) pathway of isoprenoid precursor biosynthesis [4].

Potential Target/Mechanism Of Action: Evidence from genetic and biochemical experiments identify PfIspD as the molecular target of MMV008138 [4].
