   more detail about this publication

zygote remnant during ookinete retort
  • "Confocal immunofluorescence microscopy of immature P.falciparum ookinetes stained simultaneously with mouse anti-P. falciparum chitinase (PfCHT1) MAb 1C3 (green) and rabbit polyclonal antiserum to a recombinant P.falciparum zygote-ookinete surface antigen (Pfs25-Pfs28) fusion protein (8) (red). The surface of the parasite is delineated by rhodamine staining of surface proteins Pfs25 and Pfs28. Staining with MAb 1C3 demonstrates the granular appearance of PfCHT1, which is most concentrated in the zygote remnant but also appears to be present anteriorly as well, reaching near the apical end."
  • Microscopy type: Light
  • Microscopy method: Monoclonal antibody directly to protein
  • Strain: 3D7
  • Gene model mapping comments: Blast from AF172445
  • Localisation record: strong zygote remnant during ookinete retort
  • Comment: blasting the nucleotide sequence of AF172445 doesn't appear to work, but the protein sequence matches perfectly
  • Other genes localised in this publication: gi|7530423|gb|AF064079.1| Plasmodium gallinaceum endochitinase precursor, mRNA, complete cds
