In vivo association between GFP-PfRAB7 and GFP-PfATG8 and acidic compartments. Distribution of GFP-PfRAB7 (A) or GFP-PfATG8 (B) and acidic compartments revealed in red with LysoTracker Red-DND99 is observed under normal and starvation conditions using live cell microscopy [Leica DMI 6000 microscope with MicroMAX-1300Y/HS camera (Princeton Instruments)]. The association of GFP-PfRAB7 and acidic compartments is shown in the merged image (yellow). Comparisons are between parasites at similar stages of development. The Pearson’s coefficient (r) represents the degree of colocalization in the individual images. FV; Food vacuole
