PF3D7_0113700 heat shock protein 40, type II

Transmission electron microscopy of immunogold labelling of PFE55HS (upper panel), PFA660HS (middle and lower panels) using anti-strep antibodies (large gold particles). In the lower panel co-labelling was carried out with anti-PfEMP3 antisera (small gold particles). As a control for antibody specificity, lower panel (right) shows a non-infected erythrocyte treated under the same conditions. Gold particles label the erythrocyte cytosol in erythrocytes infected with PFE55HS or PFA660HS. No gold labelling can be seen to associate with either Maurer’s

clefts, parasitophorous vacuolar membrane or erythrocyte plasma membrane.
