Mutant/mutation
The mutant expresses a mCherry tagged version of EXP2 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 EXP2 is located at the PVM of blood stages and liver stages. Weak expression was detected in oocysts and sporozoites.
