PF3D7_1301600 erythrocyte binding antigen-140

The EBA140 and EBA175 proteins colocalize in in the micronemes,of merozoites. Smears of schizonts or free merozoites of the D10 and E12 parasites are shown. Parasites were reacted with a mixture of anti-EBA140 and anti-EBA175 antibodies, followed by a mixture of FITC labelled anti-mouse and rhodamine-labelled anti-rabbit antibodies. ‘Phase’ shows the brightfield image, whereas ‘merge’ shows the red and green images overlaid.
