erythrocyte cytoplasm during early trophozoite and late trophozoite and ring
  • "Representative cells expressing the exported reporter (+Pexel) are shown in ring stage (left), early (center), and late trophozoites (right). Note that KAHRP-GFP is already exported into the host cell in early stages, whereas GBP130-YFP is retained in the parasitophorous vacuole and released after development into mature trophozoite stages, perhaps because of its unusually recessed or embedded signal sequence (see also fig. S3)."

intracellular during trophozoite, single small vesicle in erythrocyte during late trophozoite, surrounding parasite during segmenter
  • "Immunofluorescent staining of the parasite at different intracellular stages indicates that the protein is localized on the parasite at the trophozoite stage. At late trophozoite stage, it appears to be transported to the erythrocyte cytoplasm, where it is present in small vesicles or inclusions. In mature schizonts the protein accumulates around the plasma membrane of the erythrocyte. At the segmenter stage, just prior to merozoite release, it appears also to surround the intracellular merozoite, as well as the erythrocyte plasma membrane."
