PF3D7_0930300 merozoite surface protein 1

Isolated host infected erythrocyte plasma membrane (IEPM) were labelled with mAb Pf6 3B10, which is specific for a 195 kDa glycoprotein, probably MSP-1, on the surface of mature intra-erythrocytic parasites. Non-membrane-associated gold deposition is shown, indicating non-reactivity. Magnification x 20 500.
