Localisation of BiP in Wild Type 3D7 parasite: Fluorescence microscopy images of Wild Type 3D7 parasite immuno-stained with antibody against ER resident protein PfBiP. The BiP staining was found to be perinuclear at young ring-stages, perinuclear with protrusions in trophozoite stages, and as a network surrounding individual nuclei in schizont stage. Parasite nuclei are stained with DAPI.
