microtubule during early gametocyte
  • "This showed that the GFP signal co-localises or closely associates with microtubules in the early stages of the gametocytes (Fig. 6b). "
  • Microscopy type: Fixed light
  • Microscopy method: antibody
  • Strain: 3D7
  • Gene model mapping comments: inferred from another publication
  • Localisation record: microtubules during early gametocytes
  • Other genes localised in this publication: serine/threonine protein kinase, sexual stage-specific protein precursor

microtubule and mitotic spindle in nucleus during schizont
  • "Wide field and three-dimensional confocal microscopy show that the prominent tubulin structures are enclosed within the nuclear membrane and that these microtubules extend into the nuclear DNA (Fig. 6D). These results are in agreement with previous studies (7, 8, 52), and it is reasonable to infer that the anti--tubulin reactivity inside the parasite nucleus indeed labels the mitotic spindle."
  • Microscopy type: Light
  • Microscopy method: polyclonal antibody directly to protein
  • Strain: 3D7
  • Gene model mapping comments: annotation matches
  • Localisation record: mitotic spindle in nucleus and microtubules during schizont
  • Other genes localised in this publication: centrin-1, centrin-2, centrin-3, centrin-4, heat shock protein 70
