Enzyme and lipid abbreviations described in the figures are as followed: PC: Phosphatidylcholine; PE: Phosphatidylethanolamine; PS: phosphatidylserine; PI: Phosphatidylinositol; DAG: Diacylglycerol; SDPM pathway: Serine Decarboxylation-Phospho-ethanolamine Methylation; PfSD: Serine-decarboxylase; PfEK: Ethanolamine kinase; PfPMT: phosphoethanolamine N-methyltransferase; PfCK: Choline kinase; PfCCT: CTP-phosphocholine cytidylyltransferase; PfCEPT: CDP choline-choline/ethanolamine phosphotransferase protein.
