PF3D7_0617600 PIR protein stevor

Location of native STEVOR at the iRBC surface. (A) Immunofluorescence assay of live 5A-infected erythrocytes with anti-S1 (upper row) and anti-S2 (middle row) antisera recognizing native STEVOR at the iRBC surface. Either anti-S1 or anti-S2 (lower row) did not react with trypsinized iRBC. The specific antibodies that reacted with the iRBC surface were detected with Alexa Fluor–labeled goat anti-rabbit IgG.

Visualization of STEVOR surface antigens. Double staining of live 5A-iRBCs with either anti-S1 (or anti-S2) (panel i) with anti-Glycophorin C antibodies.
