pfmdr1 mutations associated with chloroquine resistance incur a fitness cost in Plasmodium falciparum

Hayward, Rhys; Saliba, Kevin; Kirk, Kiaran


Efforts to control malaria worldwide have been hindered by the development and expansion of parasite populations resistant to many first-line antimalarial compounds. Two of the best-characterized determinants of drug resistance in the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum are pfmdr1 and pfcrt, although the mechanisms by which resistance is mediated by these genes is still not clear. In order to determine whether mutations in pfmdr1 associated with chloroquine resistance affect the...[Show more]
