PF3D7_0208600 ribosome-recycling factor

PfRRF1 localizes to the apicoplast.

A. Live cell images of PfRRF1leader–GFP

transfected parasites at different stages of the erythrocytic cycle. Signals indicative of apicoplast morphology are seen in the ring,

trophozoite and schizont stages.

B. Immunolocalization of PfRRF1. Panel (i) shows a differential interference contrast (DIC) image, nuclear DNA staining with DAPI, PfRRF1leader–GFP fluorescence, MitoTracker signal, and their overlap. Panel (ii) shows

colocalization of PfRRF1leader–GFP and the apicoplast marker ACP.
