PfDegP exists in a multimeric complex, and is associated with parasite proteins Hsp70 and Eno. Parasites were stained with anti-DegP and anti-Hsp70 (B) or anti-Eno (C) antiserum; parasite nuclei were stained with 4′,6-diamidino-2-phenylindole (DAPI). Fluorescence signals from DegP and Hsp70 or Eno antibodies showed significant merging, with a co-localization coefficient > 0.80.
