   more detail about this publication

host cell nucleus and not evacuole during after tachyzoite invasion, rhoptry body during tachyzoite invasion
  • "We demonstrate that Toxoplasma gondii also uses secretion from the rhoptries during invasion to deliver a parasite-derived protein phosphatase 2C (PP2C-hn) into the host cell and direct it to the host nucleus. οΎ… 9D6 staining is not seen in evacuoles formed by cytochalasin D-treated parasites."
  • Microscopy type: Light
  • Microscopy method: antibody directly to protein
  • Strain: RHhpt-
  • Gene model mapping comments: blast from EF450457, comments match, gene model inconsistent
  • Localisation record: host cell nucleus during after tachyzoite invasion, rhoptry body during tachyzoite invasion, not evacuole during after tachyzoite invasion
  • Comment: 17085638 says the 2 gene models 74.m00766/74.m00767 should be joined together
  • Other genes localised in this publication: Rhoptry kinase family protein ROP2A (incomplete catalytic triad), hypothetical protein
