Localization and distribution of KAHRP in erythrocytes infected with P. falciparum.. The resealed erythrocytes were infected with P. falciparum and cultured for 48 h. The localization of KAHRP was detected by immunostaining with an anti-KAHRP antibody (green color). The stained cells were imaged by confocal microscopy (100×objective).
