mitochondrion during intracellular tachyzoite
  • "Intracellular parasites showed colocalization of the GFP signal with MitotrackerTM staining, indicating that TgSODB2 associates with the mitochondrion. TgSODB2 did not colocalize with MitotrackerTM in the host cell mitochondria surrounding the PV, demonstrating the specificity of targeting (Fig. 4A)."
