PF3D7_0930300 merozoite surface protein 1

Expression, localisation and solubility profile of P. falciparum RhopH2. Immunofluorescence analysis (IFA) on erythrocytes infected with PfRhopH2-HAglmS and fixed with acetone/methanol. RhopH2 is labeled with the anti-HA antibody. The bars represent 5 μm. (c) IFA on erythrocytes infected with PfRhopH2-HAglmS, fixed with acetone/methanol and probed with anti-HA (for RhopH2) and antibodies to the Maurer’s cleft protein SBP1 show that RhopH2 and SBP1 do not co-localize.
