Synonyms: asperentin
PDB Ligand Antimalarial Ligand
Comment: Cladosporin is a tricyclic octaketide that is a secondary metabolite produced by several fungal genera including Cladosporium and Aspergillus. Cladosporin exhibits broad-spectrum bioactivity, including antimalarial, antifungal, antibacterial, plant growth inhibitory properties and mammalian anti-inflammatory effects.

Guide to Malaria Pharmacology Comments
Although cladosporin exhibits potent antimalarial activity, poor oral bioavailability has precluded the compound from further advancement in the antimalarial drug development pipeline. A recent SAR study has identified a simplified cladosporin analogue (compound 28) that has higher antimalarial potency and improved metabolic stability [2].

Potential Target/Mechanism Of Action: Postgenomic methods indicate that cladosporin inhibits protein synthesis by directly targeting P. falciparum lysyl-tRNA synthetase (PfcKRS) [1].
