Ehtbp gene knockdown using G3 trophozoites. a Gene expression analysis of Ehtbp in knocked down (KD) cells grown at 3, 5, 10 μg/ml G418, using transfected cells with empty vector as a control. b Gene expression analysis of Ehtrf1 gene in Ehtbp knockdown cells. c Number of ingested erythrocytes at 2, 5, 15 and 30 min in control G3 cells and 10 μg/ml G418 Ehtbp knockdown cells. d Gene expression analysis of two genes containing the GAAC motif (Ehhgl, Ehrho) in Ehtbp KD cells. Significant difference was measured using Student’s t-test and marked with asterisks (*P < 0.05, **P < 0.002, ***P < 0.0004)
