PF3D7_1133400 apical membrane antigen 1

Immunofluorescence assay showing co-localization of PfRON2 with PfAMA1 at apical end at the time of meozoite attachment during merozoite invasion. At the time of attachment of the merozoite with the host RBCs, the PfRON2 staining was at the apical tip, the PfAMA1 staining was also mainly at the apical tip and with some distribution at the merozotie surface. During parasite invasion, the PfRON2 and PfAMA1 showed col-ocalization at the apical end of merozoite.
