   more detail about this publication

cytoplasm and erythrocyte cytoplasm during ring
  • "GFP-tagged REX4 is located in the host cell cytoplasm with some protein remaining inside the parasite, similar to the location of GFP-tagged REX3 (Figure 7B)."
  • Microscopy type: Light
  • Microscopy method: GFP
  • Strain: 3D7, not D10
  • Gene model mapping comments: Taken directly from paper, which agrees with the gene models
  • Localisation record: Erythrocyte Cytoplasm and cytoplasm during ring
  • Other genes localised in this publication: ring-exported protein 2, ring-exported protein 3, early transcribed membrane protein 4
