KAHsp40 associates with knobs on the infected erythrocyte membrane. (A-B) IFA reveals that KAHsp40 and KAHRP co-localize in the erythrocyte periphery near the erythrocyte plasma membrane. White arrows indicate the discrete foci in which they co-localize. KAHsp40 and PfEMP1 and KAHsp40 and PfEMP3 co-localize with each other on the erythrocyte plasma membrane indicating the close association of KAHsp40 with knobs.
