golgi apparatus and not cytosol and not endoplasmic reticulum during ring and schizont and trophozoite
  • "Colocalization studies using anti-Pfpmt affinity-purified polyclonal antibodies and an anti-GFP monoclonal antibody confirmed that the native Pfpmt is not cytoplasmic (Fig. 5A), showing only partial overlap with BiP (Fig. 5B), but revealed a complete colocalization with Rab6-GFP (Fig. 5C), thus demonstrating that Pfpmt resides in the Golgi apparatus of the parasite."
  • Microscopy type: Light, EM
  • Microscopy method: GFP tag, polyclonal antibody directly to protein epitopes LDDGWSRKIKDSKRKMQR and SSGGLEATKKILSDIELN
  • Strain: 3D7
  • Gene model mapping comments: Blast from AY429590, gene model inconsistent
  • Localisation record: Golgi and not ER and not cytosol during ring and troph and schizont
  • Other genes localised in this publication: protein phosphatase 2c, heat shock protein 70, Rab GTPase 6
