Localization of PfCPO by immunofluorescence microscopy. Localization of PfCPO with Mitotracker green (mitochondrial marker), PfALAS (mitochondrial marker) and PfUROD (apicoplast marker) was studied. IE, infected erythrocyte; P, parasite; H, hemozoin. Scale bar=5 μm. results presented in Fig. 4 indicate that the PfCPO signal was distributed throughout the parasite, but did not colocalize with that of Mitotracker dye (mitochondrial marker), PfALAS (mitochondrial marker) or PfUROD (apicoplast marker).
