Expression analysis of MSP3-like ORFs. IFA analysis of acetone-fixed thin smear of the blood stage parasites, using the same antibodies used for Western blot analysis, shows merozoite surface staining. The size-bar drawn in the lower right-hand corner of each microscopic field represents 5 mm. Antibodies affinity-purified against the unique region of MSP3.5 did not react to parasite proteins in IFA.
