AP-2m-KO severely disrupts schizont maturation. (A) Antibodies against the ER (PMV), Golgi apparatus (ERD2), PVM (EXP2), PPM (MSP1), IMC (GAP45, GAP50), apicoplast (CDC48), micronemes (AMA1), rhoptries (RON4), episomal K13 (GFP), and AP-2m (HA) were used to stain 3D7-AP-2m-floxed-3xHA schizonts with rap treatment (KO) or without (wt). All organelle markers have been false colored green regardless of fluorophore-conjugated secondary antibody used for clarity. Nuclei have been false colored blue. IMC-TM, transmembrane component of inner membrane complex. Scale bar, 2 mm.
