PF3D7_0935800 cytoadherence linked asexual protein 9

A. Labeling of CLAG9 in 3D7 and E5KO. Note there is labeling of E5KO (clag9 knockout) rhoptries with mAb7H8/50 that reveals RAP3, but not with anti-CLAG9 specific sera due to gene disruption. Scale bars = 5 mm. B. Trafficking of PfEMP1 and KAHRP by E5KO; labeling was identical to 3D7. Scale bars = 5 mm. CLAG9 was not detected in the knockout clone E5KO. These results show that the clag9 gene product is not directly implicated in cytoadhesion to CD36.
