PF3D7_1133400 apical membrane antigen 1

Longitudinal intensity profiling demonstrates antibody specific variation in AMA1 localisation at the tight junction. Single-slice images of example merozoites (left panel) mRON4 (green) vs rAMA1 (red) or(right panel) rRON4 (green) vs mAMA1 (red). 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
