Researcher’s Discover Parasite’s Weakness

Structure analysis by cryo-electron microscopy (middle) of the ribosome shows a new protein that is specific to this family of organisms. This protein has been named Kinetoplastid-specific ribosomal protein, or KSRP. In spite of its constant presence, this protein has passed unnoticed for years, even after the first publication of the high-resolution structure of this ribosome. Credit: Querido, J.B.
