Localisation and expression of PfHop-GFP by parasites in human red blood cells. a Localisation of PfHop in P. falciparum cells; panels show a DIC image, nuclear stain (Hoechst), distribution of PfHop, merge and overlay. b Panels show a DIC image, nuclear stain (Hoechst), distribution of PfHop-GFP, merge and overlay. c Panels show a DIC image, nucleus (Hoechst), distribution of PfHop-GFP, distribution of PfHsp90, merge and overlay for PfHsp90–PfHop-GFP co-localisation. d Panels show DIC image, stain (Hoechst), distribution of PfHop-GFP, distribution of PfHsp70, merge and overlay. PfHop displayed a similar cytosolic localisation profile to PfHsp90 (b), suggesting that the two proteins may associate. Although, PfHop-GFP and PfHsp70 exhibited overlapping cytosolic co-localisation signals, the PfHsp90–PfHop-GFP co-localisation signal was more uniform than that for PfHsp70–PfHop-GFP (b, c). It is possible that PfHop associates more closely with PfHsp90 than with PfHsp70.
