P. berghei ANKA Ookinete
Difference from wild-type
RMgm-63
Male and female gametocyte production is not affected. Genome replication occurs in the male but no nuclear division/ segmentation. No exflagellation of male gametocytes (no male gamete production).No fertilization since male gametocytes do not produce gametes.
Imported from RMgmDB
P. berghei ANKA Ookinete
Difference from wild-type
RMgm-66
Male and female gametocyte production is not affected. No exflagellation observed in mutant clone c2 and drastically reduced in mutant clone b1, therefore, a defect in male gamete formation.

Imaging data (from Malaria Metabolic Pathways)

Immunofluorescence. Smears of 3D7 parasites transformed with pCAM-BSD-MAP2HA (containing the 3′ end of the pfmap-2 coding region fused to an haemaglutinin (HA) epitope, followed by the 3′ untranslated region (3′ UTR) from the P. berghei dhfr-ts gene) were subjected to immunofluorescence analysis using an anti-HA antibody.Dorin-Semblat D, Quashie N, Halbert J, Sicard A, Doerig C, Peat E, Ranford-Cartwright L, Doerig C.

Localization of PfMAP2 by immunoelectron microscopy. Ultrathin sections of P. falciparum parasites at intraerythrocyte stage were labelled with rabbit anti-PPfMAP2 antibody followed with anti-rabbit secondary antibody conjugated with 15 nmcolloidal gold particle. Ultrathin sections of infected erythrocyte were observed under 7 000x (a), 25 000x (b), and 40 000x (c) magnification. Similarly PPfMAP2 staining in the schizont was observed under 8 000x magnification (d). the immunogold was detected in various vesicular structures including nucleus. Since we do not have a specific PPfMAP2 antibody which is nucleus-specific, we have come to understand that the expression of PfMAP2 is regionalised in various organelles of the Plasmodium parasite.Dahalan FA, Sidek HM, Murtey MD, Embi MN, Ibrahim J, Fei Tieng L, Zakaria NA, Abdul-Aziz NM.

Subcellular distribution of PfMAP2 in P. falciparum. Immunofluorescence analysis of (a) PfMAP2 without phosphatase treatment localization in P. falciparum-infected red blood cells, (b) PfMAP2 with phosphatase treatment localization in P. falciparum-infected red blood cells, (c) PPfMAP2 without phosphatase treatment localization in P. falciparum-infected red blood cells, and (d) PPfMAP2 with phosphatase treatment localization in P. falciparum-infected red blood cells. P. falciparum-infected red blood cells were treated with DAPI (blue) and incubated with primary antibody PfMAP2 (1 : 100) and secondary antibody conjugated-FITC (green) (1 : 200).Dahalan FA, Sidek HM, Murtey MD, Embi MN, Ibrahim J, Fei Tieng L, Zakaria NA, Abdul-Aziz NM.
