Abstract

Eukaryotic protozoan parasites, including the etiological agents of malaria, toxoplasmosis, and leishmaniasis, collectively cause significant mortality in humans. In a recent issue of Structure,Jain et al. (2017) identify a set of quinazolinone-based derivatives targeting the parasitic prolyl-tRNA synthetase enzyme as promising drugs for the clearance of diverse parasites.
