The ability of the compound to select a protein target is optimal only if binding is stable and occurs rapidly with high aﬃnity . Some proteins may be inactivated by proteolysis during cell lysis, detergents may change protein conformation, membrane proteins may not be extracted at all [14, 81]. One option here is to use cross-linkers that bind the drug to the target before lysis . Covalent attachment of drug to target has the additional virtue of allowing more stringent, and even denaturating, wash conditions [14, 15, 149].
CAMP response protein 1 (CARP1) is unique to kinetoplastid parasites, and CARP3 is unique to T. brucei; they are all believed to be part of a novel cAMP signaling pathway . Proteins and Proteomes In the ﬁeld of drug target deconvolution, high-sensitivity mass spectrometry is ﬁnding increased use in two areas: identiﬁcation of proteins that bind to aﬃnity columns and comparison of drug sensitive and resistant lines . Proteomes CNVs can suggest that a protein might be overexpressed in a line with additional copies, but changes in expression due to changes in regulatory sequences cannot be predicted.
Benznidazole caused small diﬀerences, mostly in trypanothione metabolism, supporting the oxidative stress MoA; as a bonus, some benznidazole metabolites were detected . An NMR metabolomic study of T. cruzi treated with plant extracts focused on the culture medium: a mitochondrial reductase was proposed as a target . In contrast, an untargeted study of L. infantum promastigotes treated with miltefosine yielded so many diﬀerences in the metabolome that no obvious primary targets could be postulated; there were alterations in internal lipid metabolism and increases in alkanes, sugars, and nucleotides.
