PF3D7_1311800 M1-family alanyl aminopeptidase

Localization of aminopeptidases in P. falciparum blood stages.

PfAPP Aminopeptidase P; PfA-M1 Aminopeptidase N; PfLAP Leucyl aminopeptidase; PfDAP Aspartyl aminopeptidase

B, Epifluorescence microscopy of live parasites expressing fusions of YFP with the indicated aminopeptidases. YFP fluorescence is pseudocolored green and Hoechst 33342 (DNA) fluorescence is pseudocolored red. The arrowhead indicates the food vacuole. Bar, 2 mm. C, indirect immunofluorescence detection of PfA-M1-HA. Secondary antibody fluorescence is pseudocolored green and DAPI (DNA) fluorescence is pseudocolored red. Bar, 2 mm.
