Subcellular localization of rSURFIN4.1 Full (3D7A) in P. falciparum-infected red blood cells. Representative fluorescence images showing the localization of rSURFIN4.1 The differential interference contrast (DIC), fluorescence image with mouse anti-Ty antibody (α-Ty, reacts with Surfin4.1), Maurer’s clefts location with rabbit anti-SBP1 antibody (α-SBP1), and merged image with nucleus staining with DAPI (Merge) are shown. rSURFIN4.1 exhibits a dotted fluorescence pattern within the red blood cell cytosol, co-localized with PfSBP1. Bar = 5 μm.
