PF3D7_0528400 palmitoyltransferase

Expression and localisation of PfDHHC proteins in P. falciparum schizonts. Triple-HA-tagged PfDHHC proteins were localised by immunofluorescence using antibodies against the 3-HA tag (green). Immunofluorescence staining of each of the tagged PfDHHC proteins was compared against that of the following known localisation markers (red): ERD2 (Golgi marker), BIP (endoplasmic reticulum marker), RAP1 (rhoptry marker), GAP45 (inner membrane complex marker) and MSP1 (plasma membrane marker). Nuclear staining by DAPI is shown in blue. For the staining of PfDHHC9 with GAP45 and MSP1, both a late schizont, as well as an early schizont, is shown in order to differentiate between IMC and plasma membrane localisation. Scale bar: 5 μm.
