Additional remarks phenotype

Mutant/mutation
The mutant expresses a mCherry tagged version of HSP101 and expresses GFP under the constitutive hsp70 promoter.

Protein (function)
Plasmodium parasites remodel their vertebrate host cells by translocating hundreds of proteins across an encasing membrane into the host cell cytosol via a putative export machinery termed PTEX (Plasmodium Translocon of EXported protein). HSP101 (PbANKA_094120), PTEX150 (PbANKA_100850), EXP2 (PbANKA_133430), PTEX88 (PbANKA_094130) and TRX2 (PbANKA_135800) have been identified as members of the PTEX complex.

Phenotype
Phenotype analyses indicate that HSP101 is located at the PVM of blood stages. In liver stages this protein is not detected in the PVM. HSP101 is also expressed in oocysts and sporozoites.

Additional information
In the paper a mutant is described that expresses mCherry-tagged HSP101 and expresses GFP in the parasitophorous vacuole (PV). This mutant is obtained by (mosquito) crossing of mutant RMgm-1327 with mutant RMgm-1333

In the paper a mutant is described that expresses mCherry-tagged HSP101 and expresses GFP in the endoplasmatic reticulum (ER). This mutant is obtained by (mosquito) crossing of mutant RMgm-1327 with mutant RMgm-1332
