PF3D7_1366800 phosphatidylserine synthase, putative

GFP-targeting for localization of PfPSS in transgenic P. falciparum parasite line. Live fluorescence microscopy images of transgenic parasites expressing PfPSS-GFP fusion protein, throughout the asexual life cycle. Parasite nuclei are stained with DAPI. PfPSS-GFP fluorescence was found to be perinuclear during all stages; in addition, peripheral ER extensions in cytoplasm was observed during late ring and trophozoite stages.
