Parent parasite used to introduce the genetic modification
Rodent Malaria ParasiteP. berghei
Parent strain/lineP. berghei ANKA
Name parent line/clone P. berghei ANKA 507cl1 (RMgm-7)
Other information parent lineP.berghei ANKA 507cl1 (RMgm-7) is a reference ANKA mutant line which expresses GFP under control of a constitutive promoter (PubMed: PMID: 16242190).
The mutant parasite was generated by
Name PI/ResearcherJ. Fonager; S.M. Khan; C.J. Janse
Name Group/DepartmentLeiden Malaria Research Group
Name InstituteLeiden University Medical Center
CityLeiden
CountryThe Netherlands
Name of the mutant parasite
RMgm numberRMgm-481
Principal name796cl1, 796cl2
Alternative nameΔmetacaspase2
Standardized name
Is the mutant parasite cloned after genetic modificationYes
Phenotype
Asexual blood stageThe phenotype of blood stages has not been analysed in detail. During the cloning procedure no evidence has been found for a delayed/affected growth/multiplication of the asexual blood stages. The generation of mutants lacking expression of metacaspase 2 indicates that metacaspase 2 is not essential for asexual blood stage development.

Additional remarks phenotype

Mutant/mutation
The mutant lacks expression of metacaspase-like protein (metacaspase 2; MC2)

Protein (function)
Cysteine proteases are so-named due to the function of a catalytic cysteine, which mediates protein hydrolysis via nucleophilic attack on the carbonyl carbon of a susceptible peptide bond (see for a review Rosenthal, P.J. 2004. Int. J. Parasitol. 34, 1489-99). Cysteine proteases are sub-divided into clans. Different clans do not share sequence or structural identity and probably arose independently, but they share the use of a cysteine to catalyse the hydrolysis of peptide bonds. Clans are sub-divided into families based on sequence identities and similarities. A clan of interest in Plasmodium is clan CD, which utilises a catalytic His-Cys dyad (in this order in the primary sequence) for activity. Clan CD proteases includes caspases in higher organisms, and sequence analyses suggest that members of the C13 and C14 families are present in Plasmodium.
Two metacaspases have been identified in Plasmodium: metacaspase 1, putative (PF13_0289; PBANKA_113140) and metacaspase-like protein (PF14_0363;PBANKA_130230). See RMgm-153 for a mutant lacking expression of metacaspase 1. Caspases are well known to play a role in apoptosis. Metacaspases are predicted CHF proteases, with paracaspases make up the caspase super-family. Metacaspases have thus far only been identified in organisms that do not possess classic caspase genes.

Phenotype
The phenotype of blood stages has not been analysed in detail. During the cloning procedure no evidence has been found for a delayed/affected growth/multiplication of the asexual blood stages. The generation of mutants lacking expression of MC2 indicates that MC2 is not essential for asexual blood stage development.

Restriction sites to linearize plasmid KspI (SacII)
Selectable marker used to select the mutant parasitegfp (FACS)
Promoter of the selectable markereef1a
Selection (positive) procedureFACS (flowsorting)
Selection (negative) procedureNo
Additional remarks genetic modificationThe GFP gene (1 copy) has been inserted into the 230p locus (PB000214.00.0) by double cross-over integration.
Additional remarks selection procedureThis reporter mutant expressing GFP does not contain a drug-selectable marker. This mutant has been selected by FACS sorting after transfection based on GFP fluorescence.
