   more detail about this publication

erythrocyte cytoplasm and maurer's cleft
  • "IFAs with 3D7 parasites expressing a myc-tagged ETRAMP4 (Spielmann et al., 2006 ) showed that REX2 (green; Cy2) has a dotty appearance outside of the PVM (ETRAMP4myc in the PVM detected by a rabbit anti-myc antibody; red, Texas Red). No REX2 signal was detectable in D10 parasites expressing ETRAMP4myc (D). (C) REX2 (green; Cy2) colocalized with the Maurers cleft protein REX1 (Hawthorne et al., 2004 ) (red; Texas Red) in 3D7 parasites. Bars, 5 m."
  • Microscopy type: Light
  • Microscopy method: antibody, GFP tag
  • Strain: 3D7, not D10
  • Gene model mapping comments: Blast from AJ290921, blast from primers AATAAGAATAAGCTTAAAAAACAACAAAGGTTAAC and CTAATGTTGTTGTTGATCATACTG, annotation doesn't match, -b is annotated as REX2 but -a matches genbank and primers where -b doesn't
  • Localisation record: Maurer's Cleft and RBC Surface
  • Other genes localised in this publication: ring-exported protein 3, ring-exported protein 4, early transcribed membrane protein 4
