Subcellular localization before and after gametocyte activation. Immuno-localization of mature P. falciparum gametocytes before and after activation, by using specific immune sera against four proteins selected from the activated gametocytes secretome and PfMiGS, ortholog of a murine male-specific protein. Pfg377, a female-specific OB marker and alpha-Tubulin, staining male gamete forming flagella, were used to distinguish between genders.
