Expression of merozoite-associated proteins during the erythrocytic developmental stages of Plasmodium falciparum. Localization of the merozoite proteins in the merozoites shown by immunofluorescence. All samples were incubated with total IgG from rabbit sera against each merozoite protein or IgG control derived from naïve rabbits, total IgG from mice sera against MSP-1 were used for co-location. Alex Flour 555 donkey anti-rabbit IgG (red fluorescence) and Alex Flour 488 donkey anti-mouse IgG (green fluorescence). Green, anti-MSP1; Red, anti-individual candidate protein as indicated. Nuclei are stained with DAPI (blue). Scale bar: 5 mm.
