|P. falciparum 3D7||Asexual||
| 32815516 (Conditional)
Conditional system in which mutant was generated with supplementation so that apicoplast is not required. Gene is required for apicoplast maintenance. Conditional mislocalisation led to decreased transcript levels in the apicoplast.

Anti-PfPyKII and anti-P. falciparum acyl carrier protein (ACP) antibodies detected by AlexaFlour goat anti-mouse 594 (red) and goat anti-rabbit 488 (green) secondary antibodies, respectively. Immunofluoresecnce of P. falciparum ACP antibody shows the apicoplast. Merged images indicate co-localization of PfPyKII and P. falciparum ACP. Nucleus stained by DAPI (blue).Maeda T, Saito T, Harb OS, Roos DS, Takeo S, Suzuki H, Tsuboi T, Takeuchi T, Asai T.
