Immunofluorescence localisation of LANCL1 in uninfected and P. falciparum-infected erythrocytes. Un-infected erythrocytes and P. falciparum-infected erythrocytes at different stages of the parasite intra-erythrocytic cycle were fixed and permeabilized. Immunofluorescence analyses were performed using the rabbit H60 LANCL1-specific serum, and a mouse serum raised against the carboxy-terminal domain of PfSBP1. DAPI staining of the nuclei assessed the stage of the intra-erythrocytic parasite (in blue). In uninfected erythrocytes (a) and early trophozoites (b) a pattern consistent with a cytosolic localization and spots of aggregation of LANCL1 is observed. In P. falciparum schizonts (c), an additional labelling similar to that obtained with PfSBP1-specific antibodies (g and h) is observed, suggesting a Maurer’s cleft-like localization of LANCL1.
