The deadliest disease caused by the Plasmodium species is malaria. Among other species, the infection caused by Plasmodium falciparum (Pf) is life-threatening.The biological function and three dimensional structure of PfLDH and human LDH are very similar. Any treatment aiming to inhibit the PfLDH can also affect the activity of human LDH. This study aims to identify molecules that show high selectivity for PfLDH without having a profound effect on the activity of human LDH. In this study, 30 in-house synthesized Quinolines based molecules were docked with both PfLDH and human LDH.
