The appearance of Plasmodium falciparum schizonts of the ITO4 line at different times of development. The time of sampling from invasion and the number of nuclei per schizont are indicated. Antibodies to proteins associated with invasion related organelles or the parasite periphery (rhoptries : RAP-1; micronemes: AMA-1, EBA-175; dense granules: RESA; parasite periphery: MSP-1, myo-A) were chosen to follow the development and assembly of merozoites in maturing schizonts.
