PTEX components are carried into the newly infected erythrocyte and are present at the PVM throughout intraerythrocytic development. (A and B) Time-course of merozoite invasion by widefield immunofluorescence microscopy with deconvolution (single slice shown) labelled for (A) tight junction component RON4 and PTEX component EXP2 or (B) RON4 and PTEX component HSP101. Both PTEX components are carried by the invading merozoite into the erythrocyte. Scale bar: 1μm. (C) HSP101 and EXP2 co-localise to distinct puncta at the PVM during later ring stage development. Scale bar: 1μm.
