Early transcribed membrane protein (ETRAMP) family member. Plasmodium conserved family with greater than ten members in P. falciparum. ETRAMPs are abundantly expressed early in the intraerythrocytic cycle and are small (frequently less than 200 aa) integral membrane proteins that are localized within the parasitophorous vacuolar membrane (PVM). All members have signal peptides plus a transmembrane domain. The ETRAMP/SEP proteins of P. yoelii and P. berghei (8-11 genes) show homology to members of the ETRAMP family of proteins of P. falciparum (14 genes) but the orthologous relationship of the different members is not completely resolved.
