PF3D7_0501300 skeleton-binding protein 1

Analysis of expression and localization of Maurer’s cleft–associated proteins in IRBCs. Confocal immunofluorescence analysis of resident (REX-PFI1735c, SBP1-PFE0065w, and Pf332-PF11_0507) or transiently associated (KAHRP-PFB0100c and PfEMP1) Maurer’s cleft proteins.

Colocalization of the resident Maurer’s cleft marker MAHRP-MAL13P1.413 with PfEMP1 in streptolysin O–pretreated IRBCs demonstrates that PfEMP1 is associated with Maurer’s clefts.
