Co-localization of PfEMP1 with Pf332, PfSbp1 and PfExp-1 in P. falciparum-infected erythrocytes. Double immuno-fluorescence images of infected erythrocytes at the trophozoite stage with antibodies against: (A) PfEMP1 (a-PfEMP1) and Pf332 (a-Pf332); B) PfEMP1 (a-PfEMP1) and PfSbp1 (a-PfSbp1); (C, D) PfEMP1 (a-PfEMP1) and PfExp-1 (a-PfExp1). Different morphological appearances of the structures stained with antibodies against PfEMP1 and PfExp-1 are shown in (C and D). (HOE), DNA staining by Hoechst. (overlay), Overlay of the micrographs shown in a row. Representative examples of three independent experiments are shown. Bar, 5 mm.
