Figure 3

Plasma membrane morphology in live PbPMP1-GFP late liver stage parasites. HeLa cells were infected with PbPMP1-GFP parasites and analyzed by confocal microscopy at 48 hpi (a,b) and 54 hpi (c,d,e). PbPMP1-GFP (green). DNA was stained with Hoechst 33342 (blue). Note the appearance of membrane accumulations (indicated with arrows), from which new membranes frequently appeared to originate and connect to the surrounding PPM. Scale bars = 10 µm. For earlier liver stage parasites see also Supplementary Fig. S5.
