PF3D7_0209000 6-cysteine protein p230

Immunofluorescence assays of P. falciparum gametocytes at 15 min post-activation showed PPLP2 labelling (green) in association with shed membranes (indicated by arrows). The exflagellating microgametocyte is highlighted by labelling of Pfs25 (red). Arrowheads indicate microgametes. The corresponding differential interference contrast (DIC) images are shown. Bar, 5 μm.
