Truncation of RhopH3 leads to mistrafficking of components of the RhopH complex. IFA of mature schizonts of control (DMSO) and rapamycin-treated rhopH3-loxP parasites, probed with MSP1-specific antibodies (either mAb 89.1 or rabbit polyclonal anti-MSP1 antibodies; red) and antibodies to the three indicated RhopH components (green). Mis-localisation of the RhopH proteins was observed in all cases, and in the case of RhopH3 the protein often appeared to reside external to the plasma membrane of intracellular merozoites. Parasite nuclei were visualized by staining with DAPI. Note that, for clarity, the merge panels do not include the DAPI signal. Scale bar, 5 μm.
