PF3D7_1133400 apical membrane antigen 1

RH2a follows the moving junction during invasion. RH2a was costained with AMA1. From top to bottom, immunofluorescence images show merozoites progressing through different stages of invasion: free merozoites, an attached merozoite, a reoriented merozoite whose apical end is facing the red blood cells, and the progression of the moving junction. Bars, 5 mm.
