Immunofluorescence microscopy of Maurer’s cleft-resident proteins. Smears of infected RBCs were fixed with acetone/methanol and probed with a series of antibodies recognizing Maurer’s cleft-resident proteins. Each row represents a phase (or DIC) image, a DAPI stain of the parasite nuclei, the immuno-fluorescence signal and an overlay of this image with the transmission image. The top row of each panel is wild-type 3D7; the second row is Pf3D7DM1. Scale bar = 5 mm.
