Synonyms: DHA | dihydroartemisinin | GNF-Pf-5634
artenimol is an approved drug (EMA (2011) in combination with piperaquine)
Compound class: Natural product or derivative
Comment: Artenimol is the active metabolite of artemisinin and all artemisinin-derived antimalarial compounds.
We show one representation of artenimol here. As with other natural products, there are alternative chemical structures due to the complex stereochemistry.
The Malaria tab on this ligand page provides additional curator comments of relevance to the Guide to MALARIA PHARMACOLOGY.
Ligand Activity Visualisation Charts
These are box plot that provide a unique visualisation, summarising all the activity data for a ligand taken from ChEMBL and GtoPdb across multiple targets and species. Click on a plot to see the median, interquartile range, low and high data points. A value of zero indicates that no data are available. A separate chart is created for each target, and where possible the algorithm tries to merge ChEMBL and GtoPdb targets by matching them on name and UniProt accession, for each available species. However, please note that inconsistency in naming of targets may lead to data for the same target being reported across multiple charts.✖
