PF3D7_1116800 heat shock protein 101 chaperone protein ClpB2

Generation and validation of HSP101-HAglmS parasite line and knockdown analysis. Immunofluorescence analysis of ring-stage parasites treated with 2.5mMGlcN for 48 h and fixed with acetone/methanol and labelled with anti-HA antibodies to detect HSP101-HA, or antibodies against exported proteins SBP1 and GEXP07. This demonstrates that knocking down expression of HSP101-HA blocks the export of SBP1 and GEXP07 into the host erythrocyte. Parasite nuclei were stained with DAPI (4’,6-diamidino-2-phenylindole). Scale bar, 5 μm.
