dense granule during tachyzoite, parasitophorous vacuole during shortly after invasion of tachyzoite
  • "Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against Toxoplasma gondii, Tg378 and Tg556 clones, are specifically observed to localize to the dense granules of tachyzoites by immunofluorescence microscopy. mAb Tg556 is directed against GRA3, a previously described 30 kDa dense granular protein. mAb Tg378 is directed against a novel 36 kDa dense granular protein, which we refer to as GRA10. These are major proteins in the excretory/secretory proteins from T. gondii before the parasite’s entry into host cells, and they are released into the parasitophorous vacuole (PV) during or shortly after invasion to be associated with the PV membrane."
