PF3D7_0930300 merozoite surface protein 1

PfROM4 is a merozoite plasma membrane protein. IFA of mature nonsegmented (top) and fully segmented (bottom) schizonts of 3D7HAROM4synth (parasites with episomal expression of N-terminal HA3-tagged PfROM4, under the control of the pfrom4 promoter), dual labeled with mAb 3F10 (anti-HA; green) and mAb 1E1 (anti-MSP1; red). The DAPI signal (blue) is not included in merged images for clarity. Bar, 5 μm.
