Confirmation of the C-terminal HA-tagging of the endogenous TgPRMT5 locus in the Pru strain. a Predicted integration event of HA fusion at the endogenous TgPRMT5 locus. Top: TgPRMT5 locus on chromosome X. Grey boxes represent the front part of TgPRMT5 gene; white boxes represent the TgPRMT5 region used for homologous recombination in the transfection plasmid; red boxes indicate HAx3-tagged. Middle: the plasmid pLIC_PRMT5_HAx3_DHFRTs. Bottom: The resultant single-crossover event at the TgPRMT5 locus with integration of one copy of the plasmid. b Western blot with anti-HA antibody that bind to the HA-tag. The band of 110 kDa was detected in the HA-tagged TgPRMT5 clone. Lane 1: clone of HA-tagged TgPRMT5; Lane 2: wild-type Pru strain as negative control. c Expression of TgPRMT5 in tachyzoites and bradyzoites. The two stages of the parasite were differentiated by antibody against BAG1, a protein expressed specifically in the bradyzoite stage. Anti-β-tubulin antibody served as a protein loading control
