Imaging data (from Malaria Metabolic Pathways)

Colocalization studies of RALP1 with rhoptry and microneme marker proteins. (A and B) RALP1-C-specific antibodies (green) colocalize with the rhoptry protein RAP1 (red) (A) and predominantly colocalize with CLAG9 a rhoptry-specific marker, (red) (B) in fixed schizonts (s) and free merozoites (m) using RAP1- and CLAG9-specific antibodies, respectively. (C and D) RALP1-C-specific antibodies (green) visualize a different compartment within the parasite than the microneme marker proteins EBA-175 (red) (C) and EBA-181 (red) (D), as is evident in the merge of the two fluorescence photomicrographs. Nuclei were stained blue (DAPI).Haase S, Cabrera A, Langer C, Treeck M, Struck N, Herrmann S, Jansen PW, Bruchhaus I, Bachmann A, Dias S, Cowman AF, Stunnenberg HG, Spielmann T, Gilberger TW.

ARO is late transcribed in blood stages of Plasmodium falciparum and co-localizes with the rhoptries. Co-localization of PfARO with (upper panel) the rhoptry marker RALP-1 (red) and (lower panel) the microneme marker EBA-181 (red). Nuclei stained with DAPI (blue). Enlargement of selected areas are marked with white square and referred as Zoom. Scale bar, 1 μm. Colocalization with the rhoptry bulb marker RALP-1 and the microneme marker EBA-181 identify PfARO as a rhoptry protein.Cabrera A, Herrmann S, Warszta D, Santos JM, John Peter AT, Kono M, Debrouver S, Jacobs T, Spielmann T, Ungermann C, Soldati-Favre D, Gilberger TW.
