PF3D7_0930300 merozoite surface protein 1

DiCre-mediated conditional disruption of P. falciparum SERA5 expression. IFA of mature schizonts of control (DMSO-treated) and RAP-treated integrant clone floxSERA5-1B6 ~44 h following treatment. No SERA5-specific signal was detectable in the majority (~98%) of the RAP-treated population. Scale bar, 5 μm. To assess the effects of SERA5 gene deletion on SERA5 protein expression, mature flox-SERA5-1B6 and floxSERA5-3B6 schizonts were examined by indirect immunofluorescence (IFA) at the end of the first erythrocytic cycle (~44 h) following RAP-treatment. No SERA5-specific signal was detectable by IFA in most of the RAP-treated floxSERA5-1B6 and flox-SERA5-3B6 schizonts
