Left: SEM image of a non-iRBC and additional SEM images of CS2, ΔPFA and
ΔPFA[PFA::HA]. Included is a display of aberrant eKnob morphologies. Right: IFA localisation of exported proteins. Investigation of marker protein localisation
using specific antisera in MeOH acetone-fixed ΔPFA with an IFA assay. No drastic difference in the localisation of EXP2, HSP70x, SBP1, REX2, PFEMP3, or PHISTC was found.
