apicoplast during late trophozoite and ring and segmenter and trophozoite
  • "The localization of P. falciparum LipA was investigated by expressing a fusion of the 119 N-terminal amino acids of LipA and green fluorescent protein (GFP) in P. falciparum erythrocytic stages. This protein localized to a single organelle within the parasites that was clearly distinct from the mitochondrion"
