Colocalisation in schizonts by IFA (following inhibitor treatment, left) of PfPDEβ-HA (red) with markers of specific subcellular compartments (green): plasmepsin V (PMV; ER marker), AMA1 (microneme marker), GAP45 (IMC marker), and MSP119 (plasma membrane marker). Nuclear material was visualized by DAPI staining (blue). Merged red and green channels are shown (merge) and a DIC microscopy image is shown to the right. Scale bar, 5 μm. A dual localisation can be seen for PDEβ consistent with a distinct apical signal predominant in Compound 2–arrested schizonts and a pattern reminiscent of a plasma membrane or inner membrane complex (IMC) localisation in E64-arrested schizonts and in free merozoites
