Antisera raised to an MBP-Pf41 fusion protein (Pf41 amino acids 115–229) recognize a protein of 40 kDa in P. falciparum (3D7) parasites that were either saponin-lysed (S) or untreated (NS) prior to solubilization in non-reducing sample buffer. The reactivity of mouse anti-Pf41 antibodies with schizonts and free merozoites in a double labeling immunofluorescence assay with rabbit anti-MSP1 antibodies is shown. The arrows indicate the apical end of the parasite (dense structure).
