mitochondrion during schizont and trophozoite
  • "Immunofluorescence studies show that PfSOD1 is cytosolic, whereas the N-terminal extension of PfSOD2 targets a green fluorescent protein fusion into the parasite's mitochondrion."
  • Microscopy type: Fixed Light, Live Light
  • Microscopy method: antibody, GFP tag
  • Strain: 3D7
  • Gene model mapping comments: blast from AY586514, annotation doesn't match
  • Localisation record: mitochondrion during trophozoite and schizont
  • Other genes localised in this publication: Fe-superoxide dismutase
