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 lysine--tRNA ligase (PfKRS1) [1].
