V Pentostam, an uncharacterized complex of Sb and carbohydrate derived from gluconic acid, is concentrated by Leishmania amastigotes via protein binding. Biochemical consequences of the interaction of amastigotes with Pentostam are inhibition of parasite bioenergetics and inhibition of ATP synthesis. REFERENCES 1. J.C. Mottram and G.H. Coombs.
