PF3D7_1229100 multidrug resistance-associated protein 2, MRP2

ABCC2 localizes to the parasite plasma membrane in Pf blood and liver stages (A) Pf ABCC2mCherry blood stage parasites, (i) merozoite, (ii) ring, (iii) trophozoite, and (iv) schizont, were analyzed by IFA using antibodies against mCherry (red) and MSP1 (green). DNA is stained by DAPI. Scale bar size is 2 mm. Pf ABCC2mCherry localization to the parasite plasma membrane (PPM) was observed in all stages of the intraerythrocytic development and free merozoites as indicated by co-localization with the PPM marker MSP1.
