PF3D7_1252100 rhoptry neck protein 3

Rhoptry body localization of PfRON3 by immunoelectron microscopy. Longitudinally sectioned merozoites in mature schizont were labeled with rabbit anti-PfRON3_2 antibodies followed by secondary antibody conjugated with gold particles. The image shows that the signals of gold particles were restricted to the rhoptry body of merozoite. Bars represent 500 nm.
