Mutant/mutation
The mutant expresses GFP marker fused to the signal peptide of PBANKA_081890 (heat shock protein 70, putative; HSP70-2, BIP), which labels the parasite’s ER. This reporter transgene is expressed under the control of the strong and constitutive hsp70 promoter.

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.

In the paper a mutant is described that expresses mCherry-tagged EXP2 and expresses GFP in the parasitophorous vacuole (PV). This mutant is obtained by (mosquito) crossing of mutant RMgm-1327 with mutant RMgm-1333

Other mutants
RMgm-1332: A mutant expressing a GFP marker fused to the signal peptide AND ER-retention sequences of PBANKA_081890 (heat shock protein 70, putative; HSP70-2, BIP), which labels the parasite’s parasitophorous vacuole (PV). This reporter transgene is expressed under the control of the strong and constitutive hsp70 promoter.

Additional remarks genetic modificationThe pBAT-SIL6 plasmid (see RMgm-757) was used to generate this mutant.
The linearized plasmid was integrated by double cross-over integration in a locus on P. berghei chromosome 6 between two hypothetical open reading frames (PBANKA_061210 and PBANKA_061220), both displaying only limited gene expression in the stages studied thus far. The integration of pBAT-SIL6 at this locus was designed to occur 1 kb 3' of PBANKA_061210 and 0.9 kb of PBANKA_260 061220.
