Live P. falciparum-infected erythrocytes were incubated in physiological Ringer’s solution and viewed, at 37 oC, using an LSM510 confocal laser scanning microscope. Confocal images of live P. falciparum-infected erythrocytes expressing SBP. Left images, differential interference contrast (DIC); middle images, GFP fluorescence and nuclear staining with Hoechst; right images, overlay. Scale bar, 4 μm.
The right column shows confocal live cell images of P. falciparum-infected erythrocytes expressing MAHRP. Both proteins localize to the Maurer’s clefts.
