A. IFA of drug-selected 3D7 parasites harbouring the AMA_M3 construct. The transgenic PfAMA1/DIII-HA product detected by anti-HA mAb 3F10 (green) co-localises with the microneme protein EBA-175 (red) in mature segmented schizonts. The inset shows similar staining of a free merozoite, where some translocation of PfAMA1/DIIIHA onto the merozoite surface is detectable as is normal for endogenous PfAMA1. B. IFA of drug-selected 3D7 parasites harbouring the AMA_ins construct. The transgene product detected by anti-HA mAb 3F10 (green) co-localises correctly with the microneme protein EBA-175 (red) in mature segmented schizonts.
