PF3D7_0423400 apical asparagine-rich protein AARP

Immunofluorescence assay to localize PfAARP by coimmuno-staining of P. falciparum parasites with anti-PfAARP (green) and anti-MSP-1 (red) antibodies. The parasite nuclei were stained with DAPI (blue) and slides were visualized by fluorescence microscope. The apical ends of the merozoites have dense structure. MSP-1 staining was found around the merozoites and the PfAARP was localized at the apex of the merozoites.
