PF3D7_0414900 armadillo-domain containing rhoptry protein

Native PfARO exhibits nucleo-apical shuttling. Confocal immunofluorescence imaging using PfARO specific antibodies detected predominant expression of native PfARO in the nucleus during the early schizont stage parasites, which decreased with the intra-erythrocytic growth of the parasite. At later stages, native PfARO was observed to be predominantly outside the nucleus (Scale bar, 2 μm).
