mitochondrion during tachyzoite, two unknown vesicular bodies during bradyzoite
  • "Using immunofluorescence assays, the polyclonal antibodies specific to T. gondii HSP60 recognized the mitochondrion in tachyzoites, as expected. In contrast, these antibodies reacted against two unknown vesicular bodies which are distinct from the classical mitochondrial pattern in bradyzoites."
  • Microscopy type: Light, EM
  • Microscopy method: antibody to homologue
  • Strain: 76K PLK
  • Gene model mapping comments: blast from AF065609, annotation matches
  • Localisation record: mitochondria during tachyzoite, two unknown vesicular bodies during bradyzoite
  • Other genes localised in this publication: -
