cytosol and not exported during trophozoite
  • "Within a triple-infected erythrocyte (A) the P. falciparum spermidine synthase protein localised throughout the parasite, indicative for a cytoplasmatic localisation (B). The merge picture (C) shows that the distribution of the P. falciparum spermidine synthase protein is restricted to the parasite."
