PF3D7_0930300 merozoite surface protein 1

PfWLP1 is expressed in the asexual blood stages of Plasmodium falciparum. Upper panel: Localization of PfWLP1 underneath the apical pole of merozoites. Image enlargements (right) of mature schizonts (left), labelled with antibodies against PfWLP1 (green) and PfMSP1 or PfAMA1 (red) and stained with Hoechst (blue). AP apical pole, N nucleus, MPM merozoite plasma membrane. Bar 5 μm. Data are representative of five independent experiments each. Lower panel: Expression of PfWLP1-HA in asexual blood stages. PfWLP1 expression in the PfWLP1-HA asexual blood stages. PfWLP1-HA was immunolabelled with anti-HA antisera (green); the asexual blood stages were visualized by Evans Blue counterstaining (red). The parasite nuclei were highlighted by Hoechst nuclear stain (blue),
