Journal Highlights

From Left to Right: Kristin K. Wobbe, Shereen Elkholy, and Pamela K. Weathers Artemisinin: The Biosynthetic Pathway and Its Regulation in Artemisia Annua, a Terpenoid-Rich Species Artemisinin, a sesquiterpene lactone isolated from the aerial parts of Artemisia anuua L. plants, is currently the best therapeutic against both drug-resistant and cerebral malaria-causing strains of Plasmodium falciparum. It has also been shown to be effective against other diseases including schistosomiasis and hepatitis as well as many types of tumors. Although chemical synthesis of artemisinin is possible, it is not economically feasible. The relatively low yield (0.01-0.8%) of artemisinin in A. annua...
