  • "Both Pf12- and Pf38-GFP fusion proteins were localized to the merozoite surface using this approach (Fig. 3A). Interestingly, Pf38-GFP was mostly concentrated in secretory organelles at the apical end of the parasite, exclusively at an early stage of schizont development, suggesting that Pf38 probably predominantly resides in these apical organelles."
