mitochondrion during intraerythrocytic
  • "We have analysed the biochemical and structural features of the mitochondrial peroxiredoxin and thioredoxin of P. falciparum. The mitochondrial localization of both proteins was confirmed by expressing green fluorescent protein fusions in parasite erythrocytic stages."
  • Microscopy type: Light
  • Microscopy method: C terminal GFP tag
  • Strain:
  • Gene model mapping comments: Blast from AAK20024, annotation matches
  • Localisation record: Mitochondria during erythrocytic stage
  • Comment: strain information not found
  • Other genes localised in this publication: thioredoxin 2

mitochondrion during schizont and trophozoite
  • "Double staining of parasite cells with anti-PfTPx-2 serum and Mito Tracker® revealed that PfTPx-2 was present in mitochondria (Fig. 4A–F)."
  • Microscopy type: Light
  • Microscopy method: polyclonal antibody directly to protein
  • Strain: FCR-3
  • Gene model mapping comments: blast from AF225978, annotation matches
  • Localisation record: mitochondria during trophozoite and schizont
  • Other genes localised in this publication: thioredoxin peroxidase 1, 1-cys peroxiredoxin, thioredoxin, putative
