cytoskeleton and not conoid during tachyzoite
  • "PhIL1 is conserved in apicomplexan parasites and localizes to the parasite periphery, concentrated at the apical end just basal to the conoid. Detergent extraction and immunolocalization data suggest that PhIL1 associates with the parasite cytoskeleton. PhIL1 peptides were detected more often in the "conoid-depleted" than the "conoid-enriched" fraction, consistent with our immunolocalization data and the hypothesis that PhIL1 is a cytoskeletal, nonconoid protein."
