PF3D7_0404900 6-cysteine protein

The genes for P12 and P41 can be disrupted and are therefore not essential for parasite growth. Immunofluorescence microscopy of Dp12 and Dp41 and parental 3D7 parasites probed with rabbit anti-P12 and anti-P41 IgGs in addition to the merozoite surface marker MSP1 mAb indicate absence of protein expression in the mutants aside from minor cross-reactivity.
