Localisation of AP-2μ-2xFKBPP-GFP and PDI by immunoelectron microscopy. Electron micrographs of vesicular colocalisation of AP-2μ-2xFKBP-GFP (18 nm gold particles) and PDI (12 nm gold particles) in developing trophozoites. N: nucleus; ER: endoplasmic reticulum; H: haemozoin; white arrowhead: AP-2μ at the nuclear membrane; black arrow: AP-2μ in vesicles; black arrowhead: AP-2μ at the ER. Immunostaining against the endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-resident protein disulfide isomerase (PDI) suggests that these tubular structures may be cross-sections of distal extensions of the ER. Parasites expressing AP-2µ-2xFKBP-GFP showed a similar localisation by immuno-EM but GFP fluorescence was too faint to reliably observe in live cells.
