P. falciparum merozoite protein location is shown, as determined by IFA and functions: rolling on the membrane by MSPs, TJ formation mediated by AMA-1-and apical rhoptries proteins, RBC deformation and invasion by microneme EBAs, protein processing by intracytoplasmic SERA-5, iRBC membrane expression by RESA and severe malaria (SM) and echinocytosis by PfEMP-1.
