PF3D7_0217500 Calcium-dependent protein kinases; CDPK1

IFA was performed on PfCDPK1-3HA-DD parasites using anti-HA antibody to detect CDPK1 and anti-IMC1g antisera. Scale bar is 2 μm. Data strongly suggest that PfCDPK1 is a major kinase that phosphorylates IMC1g in the parasite. Moreover, PfCDPK1 exhibited localization in close proximity with IMC1g in the parasite, which was reflected by overlapping fluorescence in IFA.
