Abstract: Background: The interaction of MSP119 with the cupredoxin azurin inhibits the growth of Plasmodium falciparum in red blood cells. Results: Rusticyanin forms a well-defined complex with MSP119 upon binding at the same surface area than inhibitory antibodies. Conclusion: Rusticyanin becomes an excellent therapeutic agent for malaria. Significance: Knowing the rusticyanin- MSP119 interface will allow the design of novel anti-malarial drugs
