PF3D7_0930300 merozoite surface protein 1

Confocal images of FITC PfMAg-1 in mature stage P. falciparum 3D7 infected erythrocytes examined by indirect immunofluorescent assay. Trophozoite stage parasites were immunostained with McAb X62c followed by FITC-labeled

secondary antibody. In addition to the fluorescent labeling on the bodies of trophozoite parasites, dispersed fluorescence patches were observed underneath the parasite-infected erythrocyte membrane (a), while no fluorescence was observed when normal mouse serum was used (b)

Co-localization of PfMAg-1 with PfMSP-4 or PfMSP-119 at late schizont/merozoite parasites examined by confocal fluorescent microscopy. a Merozoite detected with antibodies X62c and α-PfMSP-4. b Mature schizont detected with antibodies X62c and α-PfMSP-119. c Merozoite detected with antibodies X62c and α-PfMSP-119. Bright field images are shown on the left panel.
