Plasmodium endosymbiotic organelles were visualised using double-transfected parasites with red fluorescent protein-labelled apicoplasts and yellow fluorescent protein-labeled mitochondria (D10 acyl carrier protein-RFP, citrate synthetase-YFP). In the schizont stage both the apicoplast and mitochondria elongate, branch and divide to segregate into daughter merozoites.
