PF3D7_1420700 surface protein P113

P113 is expressed in schizonts and on the surface of free merozoites. Fixed blood-stage P. falciparum schizonts and free merozoites were probed with anti-P113 antibodies (green), the merozoite surface marker anti-MSP9 (red) and nucleic acid stained with DAPI (blue). Scale bars, 3 mm. P113, is expressed in early and late-stage schizonts and on the surface of free merozoites by co-staining with the established merozoite surface markers MSP9.

Galaway F, Drought LG, Fala M, Cross N, Kemp AC, Rayner JC, Wright GJ. P113 is a merozoite surface protein that binds the N terminus of Plasmodium falciparum RH5. Nat Commun. 2017 8:14333. PMID: 28186186
