PF3D7_0303700 lipoamide acyltransferase component of branched-chain alpha-keto acid dehydrogenase complex

BCDH and KDH localization (A) Epifluorescent images of live P. falciparum erythrocytic-stage parasites expressing GFP fused to either the BCDH leader peptide (E2-BCDH30) or the KDH leader peptide (E2-KDH30). The parasites were stained with MitoTracker to identify mitochondria and Hoescht to identify nuclei. Image z-stacks were deconvolved and then presented as a single combined image. In both cases, GFP fluorescence co-localizes with MitoTracker to the mitochondrion.
