TGME49_047230 (centrin) caltractin (centrin), putative

Experimental localisation: centrosome during tachyzoite
  • Species: Toxoplasma gondii
  • Quote inferring localisation: "At the beginning of the cell cycle, the centrosome is closely associated with one end of the growing Golgi stack (A). After the Golgi is fully grown, the centrosome migrates to the basal end of the parasite nucleus (B), where it divides (C), prior to moving back to the apical end of the nucleus and re-associating with the Golgi (D). During nuclear division (E), the two centrosomes are mostly found at the inner ends of the newly-divided Golgi, an association that persists through to the next cell cycle."
