PF3D7_0930300 merozoite surface protein 1

Co-localization and control IFAs. A. Immunolabelling of PfCLK-1 with rabbit antisera (red) detected the kinase in the schizonts´ cytoplasm as well as in the nuclei, where it co-localizes with the three SR proteins (green). Schizonts were counterlabelled with rabbit antibodies against PfMSP-1 (red). All nuclei were highlighted by Hoechst staining (blue). Bar, 5 μm. The co-localization experiments confirmed that the SR proteins are solely present in the nuclei, while in the early schizont stage, PfCLK-1 is present both in the parasite nuclei and the cytoplasm. Co-localization of PfCLK-1 with the three SR proteins can be detected in distinct nuclear regions.
