What is Atovaquone
A hydroxynaphthoquinone that has antimicrobial activity and is being used in antimalarial protocols.
Atovaquone mechanism of action
Atovaquone is a hydroxy- 1, 4- naphthoquinone, an analog of ubiquinone, with antipneumocystis activity. The mechanism of action against iPneumocystis carinii /i has not been fully elucidated. In Plasmodium species, the site of action appears to be the cytochrome bc1 complex (Complex III). Several metabolic enzymes are linked to the mitochondrial electron transport chain via ubiquinone. Inhibition of electron transport by atovaquone will result in indirect inhibition of these enzymes. The ultimate metabolic effects of such blockade may include inhibition of nucleic acid and ATP synthesis. Atovaquone also has been shown to have good iin vitro /i activity against iToxoplasma gondii /i.
