PF3D7_0930300 merozoite surface protein 1

Subcellular localization of MSP3 and ABRA Smears of late schizonts (s) of anti-MSP1 (located on the surface of the merozoite (m)) and anti-MSP3 or anti-ABRA antibodies. Anti-MSP1 mouse antibodies were labeled with rhodamine-conjugated anti-mouse antibodies (red). Anti-MSP3 and anti-ABRA rabbit antibodies were labeled with anti-rabbit antibodies conjugated with FITC (green). Co-localization is shown in the row and indicated by yellow. D10 smears labeled with anti-MSP1 (first column) and anti-MSP-3 or anti-ABRA (second column). In late D10 schizonts, MSP-3, MSP-1 and ABRA had a localization consistent with the parasitophorous vacuole and the merozoite surface.
