PF3D7_1028700 merozoite TRAP-like protein

Longitudinal intensity profiling identifies unexpected localisation profiles for MTRAP during merozoite invasion. A-C). Single-slice images of example merozoites of mRON4 (green) vs (Left panle) rMTRAP-tail (rM-tail) (red), (midle panel) rMTRAP mid (rM-mid) (red), or (right panel) rMTRAP tsr (rM-tsr). Scale bars = 1 μm. Red boxes in DIC images indicate zoomed regions for middle and right panels. Arrows indicate the position of the RON4 labelled tight junction.
