mitochondrion during intraerythrocytic
  • "The results presented in Fig. 4 indicate that the PfCPO signal was distributed throughout the parasite, but did not colocalize with that of Mitotracker dye (mitochondrial marker), PfALAS (mitochondrial marker) or PfUROD (apicoplast marker)."
  • Microscopy type: Light
  • Microscopy method: antibody
  • Strain:
  • Gene model mapping comments: inferred from another publication
  • Localisation record: mitochondrial during erythrocytic

apicoplast and not mitochondrion
  • "PfUROD was localised to the apicoplast, indicating the requirement of additional mechanisms for transport of the product coproporphyrinogen to other subcellular sites for its further conversion and ultimate heme formation."
  • Microscopy type: Light
  • Microscopy method: antibody
  • Strain:
  • Gene model mapping comments: Taken directly from paper, blast from AAZ08395, annotation matches
  • Localisation record: apicoplast and not mitochondria
  • Comment: strain information not found
  • Comment: stage information not found in publication
  • Other genes localised in this publication: porphobilinogen deaminase, heat shock protein 60
