General Information

General Information Comment Organism
physiological function synthesized as the precursor p120 form, targeted to the parasitophorous vacuole via the parasite endoplasmic reticulum/Golgi, where it is converted into the transient p96 form; p96 form is eventually redirected into the parasite to be converted into the processed p68 form that is only marginally delivered to the parasite foodvacuole Plasmodium falciparum
