P. falciparum schizonts and merozoites were double- labeled with rabbit anti-EXP1 polyclonal antibodies and mouse anti-RESA monoclonal antibody. Sch, schizont; Mz, merozoite. Bar 5 μm. the signals of anti-EXP1, co- localized with that of anti-RESA in released merozoite (B) Subcellular localization of EXP1 by immunoelectron microscopy using cross-sections of P. falciparum merozoites in mature schizont. Scale bars are 200 nm in all panels. Arrow heads; dense granules, R; rhoptry, Arrows; micronemes, N; nucleus. Gold particles corresponding to EXP1 localization were detected in the dense granules of merozoites in mature schizonts.
