The human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum exports determinants of virulence and pathology to destinations within the host erythrocyte, including the erythrocyte cytoplasm, plasma membrane and membrane profiles of parasite origin termed Maurer's clefts. Most of the exported proteins contain a conserved pentameric motif termed plasmodial export element (PEXEL)/vacuolar transfer signal (VTS) that functions as a cleavable sorting signal permitting export to the host erythrocyte.
