Additional remarks phenotype

Mutant/mutation
The mutant lacks expression of Schizont Membrane Associated Cytoadherence protein (SMAC).

Protein (function)
The protein was detected in proteome analyses of mebranes of infected red blood cells. It is a predicted 19 kDa protein, it contains a signal sequence, a PEXEL motif (RFLVE) and a transmembrane domain. Orthologs are only found in the murine Plasmodium species. It is exported into the cytoplasm of the host erythrocyte (see below)

Phenotype
Asexual blood stages show a reduced growth rate in mice (see 'Additional information')

Additional information
Phenotype analyses indicate that that the reduced growth rate of blood stages in mice is not the result of a prolonged cell cycle (schizogony) or a reduced number of merozoites produced per schizont.
Evidence is provided that parasites lacking SMAC-expression have a reduced capacity to adhere to the host receptor CD36 resulting in a strongly reduced CD36-mediated sequestration phenotype. The non-sequestering parasites have a reduced growth and evidence is provided that in addition to avoiding spleen removal other factors related to CD36-mediated sequestration are beneficial for parasite growth.

The mutant parasites cause cerebral complications in C57Bl/6 mice (with around one day delay)(unpublished observations).

Analyses of a mutant expressing a mCherry-tagged version of SMAC (SMAC::mCherry; RMgm-663) showed export of SMAC into the cytoplasm of the host erythrocyte. Staining of  live SMAC::mCherry and wild type infected erythrocytes with anti-mCherry or anti-SMAC antibodies did not provide evidence for exposure of SMAC on the surface of infected erythrocytes.

Additional remarks genetic modificationTwo general gene targeting DNA constructs pL0001 or pL0037 were used to generate constructs to disrupt the genes selected from the proteome analyses. These constructs are aimed at targeted gene disruption by double cross-over homologous recombination. Sequences of the open reading frame (ORF) and UTR regions of the selected genes were retrieved from PlasmoDB and GeneDB (www.plasmodb.org; www.genedb.org). To replace the ORF of the target genes with the selection cassette containing the pyrimethamine-resistant dhfr/ts of Toxoplasma gondii, the 5′ and 3′ flanking regions of the ORF were cloned up- and down-stream of the selection cassette of pL0001 or pL0037.
To generate plasmid pL1351, used here to disrupt smac, the 5’UTR region of smac was amplified (Asp718/HindIII; primers 3423-3424, Table S5) and cloned in pL0001. Subsequently, the 3’UTR region was cloned as an EcoRI/XbaI fragment (primers 3425-3426, Table S5) to obtain pL1351. Plasmid pL1351 was linearised using Asp718, XbaI and ScaI and transfected into parasites of reference wt-GFP-Lucschiz.

Restriction sites to linearize plasmid KspI (SacII)
Selectable marker used to select the mutant parasitegfp (FACS)
Promoter of the selectable markerama-1
Selection (positive) procedureFACS (flowsorting)
Selection (negative) procedureNo
Additional remarks genetic modificationThe GFP-Luciferase 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-Luciferase does not contain a drug-selectable marker. This mutant has been selected by FACS sorting after transfection based on GFP fluorescence.
