Other information parent lineP. berghei ANKA 820cl1m1cl1 (RMgm-164) is a reference ANKA mutant line which expresses GFP under control of a male and RFP under control of a female gametocyte specific promoter. This reference line does not contain a drug-selectable marker (PubMed: PMID: 19438517).

Additional remarks phenotype

Mutant/mutation
The mutant lacks expression of PBANKA_0312700 (DEAD/DEAH box helicase, putative) and expresses GFP under control of a male and RFP under control of a female gametocyte specific promoter.

Protein (function)
The protein was identified in a screen for proteins expressed early during P. berghei gametocyte development (early gametocyte markers).

Phenotype
Absence of male gametocytes. Female gametocytes are produced. No fertilisation and zygote/ookinete formation. The female gametocytes produced are fertile (as shown by crossing with fertile males; although fertilisation rates in these crosses were lower compared to wild type parasites).

Additional information
The protein PBANKA_0312700 has a putative AP2-G (PBANKA_1437500) binding site 650 bp upstream of its start codon and shows a robust transcriptional response at 6 hpi and is expressed in both male and female gametocytes.
