Mechanism of actionQuercetin is a specific quinone reductase 2 (QR2) inhibitor, an enzyme (along with the human QR1 homolog) which catalyzes metabolism of toxic quinolines. Inhibition of QR2 in plasmodium may potentially cause lethal oxidative stress. The inhibition of antioxidant activity in plasmodium may contribute to killing the malaria causing parasites.

Specific Function:
Represses expression from the ttgABC operon promoter and its own expression. Binds to a promoter region between the divergently transcribed ttgR and ttgABC genes/operons; in the presence of chloramphenicol or tetracycline this binding no longer occurs and ttgR and ttgABC are derepressed. This suggests that TtgR binds these antibiotics.

General Function:
Xenobiotic-transporting atpase activity
Specific Function:
High-capacity urate exporter functioning in both renal and extrarenal urate excretion. Plays a role in porphyrin homeostasis as it is able to mediates the export of protoporhyrin IX (PPIX) both from mitochondria to cytosol and from cytosol to extracellular space, and cellular export of hemin, and heme. Xenobiotic transporter that may play an important role in the exclusion of xenobiotics from t...
