PF3D7_1133400 apical membrane antigen 1

Generation of transgenic parasites in which RhopH2 is epitope-tagged. Immunofluorescence analysis (IFA) on schizonts fixed with acetone/methanol and labelled with anti-HA antibody to detect RhopH2 and other antibodies, as indicated. Immunofluorescence analysis (IFA) confirmed RhopH2-HA localized to the rhoptry and co-localized with other rhoptry bulb proteins, RhopH1, RhopH3 and RAMA but not with the rhoptry neck protein, RON4, the micronemal marker, AMA-1 or the plasma membrane protein MSP1.
