Over-expression and localization of PfDHHC3 and PFDHHC9 (PF11_0167) in late stage parasites. C. Expression of PfDHHC3-mCherry. C. Expression of PfDHHC3-mCherry. C2. Microscopic analysis located this GFP-fusion protein in the periphery of the nascent merozoites. C3. Co-localization with the IMC marker GAPM2 (anti-GAPM2, green) in fixed cells shows differential localization of PfDHHC2-mCherry with the IMC localization in early stages (T1) and colocalization in nascent merozoites (T3) consistent with plasma membrane association. Scale bar, 1 μm. D.
Expression of PfDHHC9-mCherry. D2. Microscopy localized this fusion protein mainly in apical structures in the parasite. D3. Co-localization with the IMC marker GAPM2 (anti-GAPM2, green) in fixed cells shows differential localization of PfDHHC9 with the IMC (T3). Scale bar, 1 μm.
