PF3D7_0818900 PfHsp70-1

Expression and localisation of PfHsp70-1 in trophozoite-infected erythrocytes. The distribution of PfHsp70-1 was visualised using anti-rabbit IgG-TRITC secondary antibodies and nuclei were visualised by DAPI staining. PfHsp70-1 localises mainly at the periphery of the parasite cytoplasm and in the nucleus. PfHsp70-1, images were captured under the TRITC filter and the fluorescence is pseudocoloured red. Nucleus, images were captured under UV light and the fluorescence is pseudocoloured blue. Merge 1, combination of the TRITC and DAPI images. Merge 2, combination of merge 1 and the corresponding phase contrast image. Arrows indicate localisation of PfHsp70-1 at the periphery of the parasite cytoplasm. Size bars, 5mm.
