Artemisinin

Its effect on the ultrastructure of the red inner phase of the rat Plasmodium is the change of the membrane structure of Plasmodium falciparum, which first acts on the membrane, the membrane, the mitochondria and the endoplasmic reticulum. It is suggested that the function of artemisinin is to interfere with the function of the surface membrane and mitochondria. May be the role of artemisinin in the film, thereby blocking the earliest stages of nutrition uptake, so that the rapid emergence of Plasmodium falciparum hunger, rapid formation of autophagy, and continue to discharge the parasite in vitro, so that the loss of a large number of cell death and death. In vitro culture of Plasmodium falciparum to tritiated isoleucine intake also shows the initial action might be suppressed parasitemia protein synthesis.

Arteannuin B, which co-occurs with artemisinin, the potent antimalarial principle of the Chinese medicinal herb Artemisia annua (Asteraceae), has been converted to the latter using crude and semi-purified cell-free extracts of the leaf homogenates of the plant. Detection procedures to quantitate this bioconversion, including one that is novel which uses gcms, are detailed.
