golgi apparatus and parasite plasma membrane and trans-golgi network during tachyzoite
  • "The localization of R2NtR4 NtTy is in close proximity to but do not overlap perfectly with GRASP-YFP, suggesting that the chimera accumulates in the Trans Golgi Network (TGN) recently defined with TgGalNac marker (51). These results are in agreement with the previously reported localization for TgROM2 (24) and provide the first evidence that R2Nt is sufficient to confer Golgi localization to related ROM proteins that are normally targeted to the micronemes or to the PM. In order to identify a sorting motif within R2Nt independently of the rest of the protein, the R2NtR21TMGFPTy fusion was constructed (Figureļ¾ 7)."
