cytosol during merozoite containing meront and sporozoite
  • "The CpSFP-PPT protein was also detected in the cytosol of all parasite life cycle stages by indirect immunofluorescence microscopy (Fig. 6), which agrees with the lack of any signal peptide sequence and is congruent with the cytosolic nature of its substrates (CpFAS1 and CpPKS1) (44)."
