Abstract

This innovation is the result of a 300,000 compound screen for inhibition of MEX-5, a nematode RNA-binding protein, from binding to RNA. MEX-5 and other RNA-binding proteins enable embryogenesis in nematodes. Infectious nematodes are highly reproductive and eliminating embryos has presented a major obstacle in traditional anti-parasitic treatment. The ability to perturb pathways involved in embryogenesis presents the opportunity for development of a novel anti-parasitic agent.
