PF3D7_0501300 skeleton-binding protein 1

RhopH2 is not involved in the trafficking of exported proteins in the erythrocyte cytoplasm. (a) Representative IFAs of erythrocytes infected with RhopH2-HAglmS parasites grown in 0 mM or 2.5 mM GlcN using the indicated antibodies show trafficking of RESA, SBP1 and PfEMP1 is unaffected upon RhopH2 knockdown. Scale bar = 5 μm. No defect in the export of PfEMP1, or trafficking of either RESA to the erythrocyte membrane or SBP1 to the Maurer’s clefts was evident after knocking down RhopH2 expression with GlcN.
