rhoptry during late schizont, parasite plasma membrane during schizont and trophozoite, under parasite plasma membrane during merozoite
  • "Figure 1. PfRab11A has a dynamic localisation. (AC) Throughout the erythrocytic stage of parasite development the localisation of PfRab11A changes. (A) Rhoptry localisation was confirmed in mature schizonts by immuno-staining infected blood smears with anti-PfRab11A and co-localisation (enlargement shown boxed in merge) demonstrated with anti-PfRhopH2 (rhoptry specific marker) antibodies. The bright-field image shows a mature schizont with the nuclei stained with Dapi. (B) PfRab11A co-localises partially with PfMSP1 (plasma membrane specific marker) in trophozoites (i, ii) and schizonts (iii). The merged images show co-localisation of the two proteins, giving single dots. In merozoites (iv), the localisation of PfMSP1 and PfRab11A is now distinct with PfRab11A having an apical localisation slightly under the plasma membrane decorated by PfMSP1. (C) The first two panels show the bright-field (phase) and Dapi, respectively. The last panel in all images shows an overlay. In young (i) and segmented (ii) schizonts, PfRab11A partially co-localises with PfGAP45 (Glidosome Associated Protein 45 used as an Inner Membrane Complex specific marker). "

vesicle during schizont
  • "In contrast, PfRab11A is expected to be specific for recycling endosomes ( Ullrich et al., 1996), and the antibodies decorate vesicular-like structures ( Fig. 6C,D) that do not co-localize with Pf39 ( Fig. 6G). "
