Cellular localisation of hexokinase. Sections of blood stage forms of the parasite were labelled with monospecific hexokinase serum followed by protein A gold labelling and silver enhancement. Slide I, ring stage; slide 2, trophozoite; slide 3, schizont; slide 4, schizont at higher magnification. Bars indicate 1 mm (slides 1 3) or 0.1 /mm (slide 4). Out of 947 gold particles counted, a statistically significant amount (65.7%) was found in association with parasite membrane structures.
