Immuno-gold localization of Pfhsp and Pfgrp. A. Sections of a mature segmenter with rappit antiserum against Pfhsp fusion protein and protein A-gold. The nuclei (N) of budding merozoites (m) are labeled diffusely with colloidal gold particles (arrows). B. Section of mature gametocyte incubated witrh antiserum against Pfgrp peptide and protein A-gold.. Label (arrows) is associated with membranes of the ER. C. Sections of a schizont. Lable (arrows) is associated with discrete areas of the schizont cytoplasm that correspond to ER. Not absence of label on the nucleus (N) and parasitophorous vacuole (PV). Bar – 0.5 mm.
