A and B. GFP fluorescence in live 3D7 (A) or D10 (B) parasites expressing wild-type REX2GFP from an episomal vector. GFP fluorescence appears as dots in the host cell cytoplasm typical for Maurer’s cleft localization. Nuclei are stained with DAPI (blue); merges with bright field images (bf) are shown. D. IFA of acetone-fixed infected RBCs expressing REX2GFP and stained with anti-GFP (green) and anti-KAHRP (red) antibodies. Overlays are shown as indicated above each panel. The last panel shows an overlay of all three images (merged). E. IFA of acetone-fixed infected RBCs expressing REX2GFP and stained with anti-GFP (green) and anti-BiP (red) antibodies. Overlays of panels are shown as in (D). Size bars are 2 mm.
