Apical expression of RhopH1/Clag members -2, -3.1, and -9 in P. falciparum segmented schizonts. Schizont-infected erythrocytes were duallabeled with a-CL3.1B and a-RhopH2 mAb 61.3 in the 3D7 parasite line (Panel A); a-CL3.1A and a-CL9M (Panel B) and a-CL3.1A and a-CL2N (Clag2) (Panel C) in Dd2 parasite line. Overlaid images are shown in the right-hand panels. All segmented schizont-stage parasites are positive for the antisera against Clag2, -3.1, and -9. Nuclei are counterstained with either DAPI or Hoechst-33342 (Hx). Scale bar represents 5 mm. Overlaid images of the double-staining for anti-Clag3.1 and anti-PfRhopH2 or anti-Clag3.1 and anti-Clag9 sera reacting with segmented schizonts showed indistinguishable patterns of localization for these proteins. Clag3.1 and Clag2 are localized within the rhoptries of segmented schizonts.
