PF3D7_0903200 ras-related protein RAB7

Immunofluorescence showing colocalization (white) of PfRab7 (red) and PfAtg8 (green) in normal and starvation culture conditions. PfRab7+/PfAtg8+ double labeled autophagosomes can be found at the food vacuole suggesting that it, rather than lysosomes, is the final lytic compartment in malaria parasite autophagy.
