PF3D7_0209000 6-cysteine protein p230

Location of PPLP2 in P. falciparum gametocytes during activation. A. Cultures of gametocytes before activation, and at 7 and 15 min post-activation, were labelled with antiserum B directed against PPLP2 (green) and counterstained with (A) anti-Pfs230 antisera (red) or (B) anti-Pfs25. The corresponding differential interference contrast (DIC) images are shown. Note that mature P. falciparum gametocytes have a banana-like shape but round up during activation. Bar, 5 μm (A) and 2 μm (B).
