PFB0080c-knockout P. falciparum express VAR2CSA on the surface of infected erythrocytes. A and B, Immuno-fluorescence analysis of VAR2CSA in live ΔPFB0080c IRBCs was performed using rabbit anti-VAR2CSA antiserum followed by biotin-conjugated sheep antirabbit IgG secondary antibody and phycoerythrin-conjugated streptavidin. Shown are the immunofluorescent and light micrographs of parental 3D7-CSA parasites (A) and ΔPFB0080c parasites (B); both parasite types expressed VAR2CSA protein.
