Immunofluorescence images showing the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) morphology in AlF4 and vinblastine treated parasites. (A) PfBiP localization in control parasites for AlF4- treatment, (B) ER morphology in AlF4- treated parasites (14 parasites were counted, none showed dispersal of ER struc-
ture), (C) PfBiP localization in solvent (PBS) control parasites for vinblastine treatment, (D) ER morphology in vinblastine-treated parasites (26 parasites were counted, none showed dispersal), (E) ER morphology in parasites reverted after vinblastine treatment (27 parasites counted). Scale Bar: 10 mm. Unlike mammalian cells, no disintegration of the ER was observed in parasites subjected to vinblastine and AlF4-.Both control parasites and drug-treated parasites showed perinuclear ER morphology consistent with the normal development of the ER.
