PF3D7_1335300 reticulocyte binding protein 2 homologue b, ALKBH5

Upper pannel: Immunofluorescence microscopy using endogenously derived Pf CK2α–HA. Localization with the anti-HA antibodies (green) confirmed

expression in the nucleus (blue, DAPI) and cytosol of fixed parasites in the trophozoite (T) and schizont (S) stage. Scale bar indicates 2 μm. Enlargements of selected areas are marked with a white square. DIC, differential interference contrast microscopy. PF3D7_1108400. The endogenously tagged protein was localized in the parasite’s cytosol, as well as in the nucleus of trophozoite stage parasites. In the schizont stage of the parasite the dual localization of

endogenously tagged CK2 was less pronounced and appeared predominantly cytosolic. Lowe pannel: Expression of Rh2b–HA was verified by IFA using anti-HA antibodies. Scale bar, 2 μm. DIC, differential interference contrast microscopy. Rh2b–HA is localized at the apical pole of nascent merozoites.
