nucleus during schizont and trophozoite, cytoplasm during gametocyte stage iv and gametocyte stage v
  • "Finally, immunofluorescence studies revealed differential subcellular localizations: both factors were observed in the nucleus of asexual- and sexual-stage cells, and PfHMGB2 was also detected in the cytoplasm of gametocytes."
  • Microscopy type: Light
  • Microscopy method: polyclonal antibody directly to protein
  • Strain: 3D7
  • Gene model mapping comments: Taken directly from paper, blast from primer
  • Localisation record: Nucleus during troph and schizont, cytoplasm during gametocyte stage IV and gametocyte stage V
  • Comment: The level of PfHMGB1 expression was clearly lower in gametocytes than in mixed asexual stages, in contrast to PfHMGB2, whose expression was higher in gametocytes.
  • Other genes localised in this publication: high mobility group protein
