About This Project

Phytophthora infestans is the causal agent of late blight disease, which affects potato and tomato crops, causing significant economic losses in the production of these crops worldwide. Glucokinase 1 from P. infestans (PiGlcK-1) is a key enzyme in the metabolism of this phytopathogen. In this project we propose to make a structural characterization of PiGlck-1, which could contribute to the design of inhibitors for this enzyme that help to combat this disease.
