a) Morphology of and infected cell. PVM – parasitophorous vacuole membrane; MC – Maurer’s clefts; K – knob structures. b) immunolabeling showing gold particles over Maurer’s clafts. EDM – electron dense material. c) Localization of gold particles over Maurer’s clefts, adjacent to plasma membrane. d) Tris-lysed infected cell, gold particles distributed over membranes of Maurer’s clefts. Bar 200 nm.
