Cell cycle arrest

Growth arrest before schizogony but \"no effect on protein export or acetylation of the exported proteins HRP2 and HRP3. Pf3D7_1437000-depleted parasites arrested later in their development cycle than export-blocked parasites, suggesting the protein’s essential role is distinct from protein export.\"

\"Here, we used inducible gene deletion and post-transcriptional knockdown to investigate the primary ER-resident NAT candidate, Pf3D7_1437000. We found that it localizes to the ER and is required for parasite growth. However, depletion of Pf3D7_1437000 had no effect on protein export or acetylation of the exported proteins HRP2 and HRP3. Despite this, Pf3D7_1437000 depletion impedes parasite development within the host red blood cell and prevents parasites from completing genome replication\"
