   more detail about this publication

  • "predicted amino acid sequence of NcMIC2 contains one integrin-like domain (I or A domain), five thrombospondin (TSP) repeats, a putative transmembrane spanning region and intracellular C-terminus, and was localized to micronemes by cryo-immunoelectron microscopy"
  • Microscopy type: Light, EM
  • Microscopy method: polyclonal antibody directly to protein
  • Strain:
  • Gene model mapping comments: blast from AAF01565, annotation matches, incorrect gene model?
  • Localisation record: microneme
