PF3D7_1016300 glycophorin binding protein

An artificial N-terminal extension has no effect on protein export efficiency. (B) Addition of the GBP130 N-terminal extension or an artificial extension to a canonical signal peptide has little effect on protein export efficiency. A schematic of each construct is shown above the respective images. All images are of live cells. DIC, differential interference contrast; GFP, green fluorescent protein; Hoechst, nuclear staining. In merge and overlay: green, GFP; blue, Hoechst.
