PF3D7_1218000 thrombospondin-related apical membrane protein

Localization of PfTRAMP by immuno-electron microscopy. Electron micrographs showing immuno-gold staining of P. falciparum schizonts (A) and merozoites (B) using anti- PfTRAMP antibodies. PfTRAMP localizes to the bulb region of rhoptries in merozoites developing within a schizont (A) as well as free merozoites (B).(Rh: rhoptry, Nu: nucleus).
