PF3D7_1133400 apical membrane antigen 1

Upper panel: Double labelling of PfRON6 with AMA1 PF11_0344 in segmented schizonts. Confocal microscopy using anti-rPfRON6-B with anti-AMA1 (microneme marker). EM: Electron micrograph of immunogold staining using affinity purified anti-rRON6-C antibodies. Arrows indicate PfRON6.

Right panel: Localisation of PfRON6 during the asexual red blood cell (RBC) cycle. Immunofluorescence microscopy using anti-rPfRON6-B antisera and DAPI on parasites at different stages of the asexual RBC cycle. The corresponding phase contrast images are shown.
