attachment site of subpellicular microtubule and centriole and conoid fiber ends and spindle pole during tachyzoite
  • "EGFP-TgDLC localizes in spindle poles and centrioles, in a bright spot at the apical end of the parasite, in an apical cap extending down the periphery of the parasite for ~ 1.5 ?m, and in a small ring at the basal end of the parasite. The apical cap extends for a much shorter distance than do the subpellicular MT. οΎ… This intensity distribution correlates exactly with higher resolution localization by immuno-EM (Figure 5C), revealing specific localization to the two ends of the conoid fibers as well as at the sites of attachment of subpellicular MT to the polar ring, the (?)end of the subpellicular MT"
