Plasma membrane association is lost in parasites expressing the truncated PfPLSCR-GFP fusion protein, which distributes throughout the parasite cytosol. Schematic of the CRISPR-Cas9 mediated KO strategy. Expression of sfGFP is driven under a constitutive BiP promoter. Live-cell image of PfPLSCR KO parasites expressing sfGFP throughout asexual parasite development. Parasite nuclei are stained with DAPI (blue).
