PF3D7_1370300 membrane associated histidine-rich protein

Live-cell fluorescence analysis of GFP-tagged exported proteins. Predicted native protein lengths (amino acids [aa]) and schematic representations of six proteins that were selected for GFP tagging are shown on the left. Gray = signal sequence, blue = transmembrane domain (TM), yellow = PEXEL motif, green = GFP tag. Live-cell fluorescence and DIC microscopy of transfectants expressing GFP-tagged putative Maurer’s cleft proteins revealed fluorescent puncta in the RBC cytoplasm. Scale bar=5 mm. we visualized each of the GFP-tagged proteins as puncta in the host RBC cytoplasm, consistent with a Maurer’s cleft association.
