Identification and characterization of a macrophage migration inhibitor factor (MIF) homologue in trypanosomes

Project Details

Description

The aim is to identify and characterize putative MIF homologue, i.e. parasite derived MIF termed. Structural comparison between host MIF and MIFpt would enable developing lead compounds to selectively block MIFpt and might have pave the way to better understanding trypanosome biology and develop new strategies to control African trypanosomiasis.
