MIC8 serves as escorter for the non-membrane adhesin TgMIC3. Reprinted from [13], Copyright © 2002, with permission from Elsevier. Double IFA analysis by confocal microscopy of parasites transiently transfected with pTMIC8GPI. TgMIC8 covalently linked to a GPI anchor localized perfectly at the plasma membrane of the parasites. TgMIC3 redistributed to the plasma membrane in the transiently transfected parasites, while the protein is perfectly sorted to the micronemes in a vacuole containing non-transfected parasites [13]
