IFA images illustrating AMA1 protein stored in micronemes (top) or secreted and translocated at the surface of the parasite before egress (bottom). Middle: Magnified images of the areas indicated by a dashed box to the left. Microneme secretion was unaltered in Pfnd9 iKO parasites but rhoptry secretion was affected.
