PF3D7_1246200 actin I

3D structured illumination microscopy (3D SIM) of three separate invading P. falciparum merozoites labelled with rabbit (upper row) and mouse (lower row) anti-Act239–253. Labelling shows actin (Red), RON4 (Green) and DAPI (Blue). In all instances Anti-Act239–253 labelling was concentrated in a ring lying posterior to the tight junction during merozoite invasion, defined as the edge of the junction towards the posterior of the parasite.
