PfHsp70-x interacts with exported Hsp40s and PfEMP1. A. proximity ligation assay (PLA) of (upper panel) PfHsp70-x/PfEMP1, (second panel) PfHsp70-x/A660-GFP (PFA0660w), (third panel) PfHsp70-x/E55-GFP (PFE0055c). A red signal indicates a positive interaction. Lower panel shows negative control. PfHsp70-x appears to closely interact with the ATS of PfEMP1, and both exported Hsp40s studied.Külzer S, Charnaud S, Dagan T, Riedel J, Mandal P, Pesce ER, Blatch GL, Crabb BS, Gilson PR, Przyborski JM.

Parasites were tagged by single cross-over homologous recombination, the endogenous gene locus to include the GFP coding sequence. PFE55INT. Co-immunofluorescence analysis on erythrocytes infected with PFE55INT, using anti-sera directed against STEVOR (A), MAHRP1 MAL13P1.413 (B), KAHRP PFB0100c (C). Fluorescence channels are shown individually in black/white for highest contrast. All images are maximal projections of Z-stack serial sections. In merge image green, GFP; red, STEVOR (A), MAHRP (B), KAHRP (C) or ATS domain of PfEMP1 (D); blue, Hoechst. Inset shows enlargement of merge (white box). The fusion protein labelled punctate structures within the infected erythrocytebut clearly not in Maurer’s clefts.Külzer S, Rug M, Brinkmann K, Cannon P, Cowman A, Lingelbach K, Blatch GL, Maier AG, Przyborski JM.

(A) Live cell imaging of co-transfectants expressing saGFP (self-assembling split GFP) fragments in various cellular compartments. In merge and overlay: green, GFP; blue, Hoechst. (B) Vectors available for analysis of cellular compartmentalisation using saGFP. Numbers in targeting sequence refer to N-terminal amino acids. B, Blasticidin-S-deaminase resistance cassette; D, hDHFR resistance cassette. *Can be used to generate fusions as multiple cloning sites situated in front of saGFP coding sequence.

GFP fusions to three genes (PFI1780w, PFE0055c, PFI1755c) whose products are exported into the red blood cell cytosol.Sargeant TJ, Marti M, Caler E, Carlton JM, Simpson K, Speed TP, Cowman AF.

Parasites were transfected with the GFP chimeras of the 3 genes. Experimental verification of their sub-cellular localization indicated that REX-3 and Hsp40 were exported into the host cell cytosol while the protease accumulated in the parasitophorous vacuole.Sargeant TJ, Marti M, Caler E, Carlton JM, Simpson K, Speed TP, Cowman AF.
