Dynamics of ER Mitochondria Contact (ERMC) in malaria parasite P. falciparum. (A) Live fluorescence microscopy images taken at different developmental stages of intraerythrocytic life cycle of PfPSS-GFP transgenic parasites. Mitochondria is stained with live fluorescent dye MitoTracker Red. Parasites were different time points (hpi- hours post infection). Parasites nuclei are stained with DAPI. Three dimensional reconstruction of selected confocal images using series of Z‐stacks with IMARIS software. Mitochondria are stained with MitoTracker (Red) and nuclei are stained with DAPI (Blue).
