PF3D7_0631400 Pfmc-2TM Maurer's cleft two transmembrane protein

Localization and topology of the PfEPF3 proteins. A. Fluorescent patterns of iRBCs infected by 3D7/pARL2-Pfepf3-gfp (live imaging) and 3D7/pARL2-Pfepf3-3HA (immunodetection using anti-HA antibodies, in green, and anti-PfMC-2TM antibodies, in red) and of resealed ghosts from 3D7/pARL2-Pfepf3-gfp iRBCs (GFP fluorescence, in green, and immunodetection using anti-SBP1 antibodies, in red). RBCs and ghost preparations were incubated with DAPI for nucleus labelling. B. Immunoelectron microscopy using anti-GFP antibodies.
