Upper panel: Co-localization of the group A protein PFD1110w (anti-PFD1110w, red) with the group B alveolin PFE1285w (PFE1285w-GFP, green) emphasizes the differential nature of the two structures in the nascent IMC and their spatial relation during the ongoing schizogony (T1-3). Nuclei stained with DAPI. Scale bar 2 μm.
Lower panel: A double transgenic parasite line was generated expressing a different combination of proteins, MAL13P1.130-GFP (group A) and PF10_0039-mCherry. The dynamic distribution of these two members confirmed the spatial distinction but intimate proximity of the group A and group B defined IMC sub-compartments during the early phase of IMC biogenesis.
