New pre-print on infection thread polarity

In this manuscript we show that the RPG protein is a central polarizing protein and organizes the so-called “infectosome” at the tip of progressing infection threads and in the nuclear periphery.

Although technically challenging, the application of FLIM imaging allowed us to discriminate fluorophores from autofluorescence in a scientifically sound way and to image infectosomes with highest precision.
