PF3D7_0930300 merozoite surface protein 1

PfWLP1 is expressed in the asexual blood stages of Plasmodium falciparum. a Expression of PfWLP1 in the asexual blood stages. PfWLP1 was immunolabelled with anti-PfWLP1-rp2 antisera (green); the asexual blood stages were visualized with antisera against PfEXP1, PfAMA1 and PfMSP1 (red). The parasite nuclei were highlighted by Hoechst nuclear stain (blue). ImSchizont, immature schizont; mSchizont, mature schizont. Bar 5 μm. Data are representative of five independent experiments each.
