PF3D7_1428600 peptide chain release factor 1

Detection and subcellular localization of PfRF1Mit and PfRF2Api. (C-F) Immunofluorescence localization of the RFs in P. falciparum infected erythrocytes by confocal microscopy. PfRF1Mit co-localizes with Mitotracker Red (C), with no overlap seen with the apicoplast marker PfHU (D). PfRF2Api colocalizes with apicoplast-targeted GFP in the P. falciparum D10 ACPleader-GFP line. (E); no overlap of the PfRF2Api signal is seen with Mitotracker Red (F). Nuclear DNA is stained with DAPI.
