PF3D7_0314400 serine/threonine protein phosphatase 6, putative

Expression and localization of PfPTPA-GFP (d) and PfPP2A-GFP (e) throughout the erythrocytic cell cycle of P. falciparum were analyzed by fluorescence microscopy after transfection. Examination of live parasites transfected with pfptpa-gfp showed that the signal was confined within the parasite where the distribution is nucleo-cytoplasmic in rings, trophozoites and schizonts (d), as the fluorescence partially overlapped DNA staining. Parasites transfected with the construct containing pfpp2a-gfp showed a nucleo-cytoplasmic distribution in rings and schizonts with an intense accumulation in the nucleus of late trophozoites.
