Once the crystallographic work showed the extended nature of the active site, the Dunn lab was able to exploit this to conduct studies of the various subsites along the cleft according to the principles first described by Schechter and Berger [12]. In addition, the efforts of Theo Hofmann in Toronto [26] revealed the value of adding additional amino acids to the right and to the left of the cleavage point. 5 Exploration of the Active Sites of Aspartic Proteinase and Relation to Drug Discovery filling the P3 and the P0 2 subsites, the activity of enzymatic cleavage could be optimized, with little additional advantage gained by adding additional amino acids.

The figure was created using the Pymol program and the PDB file 2r9b. On the left of the figure, a proline residue in the P4 position of the inhibitor makes contact with the C-terminal side of the active site cleft. On the right-hand side of the figure, a phenylalanine in P3 and a leucine in P1 make contact with the N-terminal side of the active site cleft. (b) View of the C-terminal half of the binding cleft of P. falciparum plasmepsin 2 with a bound peptidomimetic inhibitor. Thefigure was created using the Pymol program and the PDB file 2r9b.
