Localization of native PfRh4 was assessed by wide-field immunofluorescence assay using the anti-PfRh4 mAbs. PfRh4 (green) was co-stained with rhoptry protein, PfRh2 (red) and nuclei-stain DAPI (blue). DIC shows the differential interference contrast view of the same field. Scale bar = 5 μm. PfRh4, together with the other PfRh family of proteins, localize to the rhoptries of P. falciparum parasites in an apical localization that predominantly co-localized with PfRh2 another rhoptry protein.
