Loss of TgANT results in asynchronous replication. a IMC1 (red), the marker of different stages of cell division; DAPI (blue) was used to stain nuclei. Arrowheads indicate parasites with abnormal cytoskeletal daughter budding. Scale bar: 2 μm. b Rate of asynchronous PVs in Δant (approx. 45%) and RHΔku80 (approx. 7%). Randomly selected vacuoles (n = 100) from two independent experiments were quantified. c Apicoplast of Δant and RHΔku80 strains was determined by immunofluorescence. ACP was used to mark the apicoplast. Arrows indicate parasites with abnormal apicoplast division. Scale bar: 2 μm. d Loss rate of the apicoplast in Δant (appox. 44%) and RHΔku80 (approx. 7%). Randomly selected vacuoles (n = 100) from two independent experiments were quantified. Abbreviations: ACP, Acyl carrier protein; IMC1, Inner membrane complex protein 1
