PF3D7_0918600 ATP-dependent DNA helicase Q1; bloom protein homolog

Co-localization of PfBlm and PfWrn by immunofluorescence dual colour staining and confocal microscopy. Panels a, b, c, d and e show the images of merozoite attached to RBC, trophozoite, early schizont, mature schizont and late schizont respectively. (i) Immunofluorescently stained cell (green, P. falciparum Wrn protein), (ii) immunofluorescently stained cell (red, PfBlm), (iii) super-imposed images of PfBlm and PfWrn, (iv) super-imposed images. The results reveal that PfWrn was found in nucleus as reported and PfBlm is expressed in nucleus as well as in cytoplasm. The co-localization of PfWrn and PfBlm was observed to some extent in invading merozoite (a) and trophozoite stages.
