PF3D7_0930300 merozoite surface protein 1

Upper panel: IFA of compound 2-arrested condΔEXP1 late-stage schizonts show localization of EXP1*-HA at the PVM. α-MSP1 (MSP1) labels the PPM. Nuclei were stained with DAPI; scale bars, 5 μm. IFA of control and ΔEXP1 (rapalog) late-stage gametocytes using α-HA to detect EXP1*-HA and α-Pfg377 (late-stage gametocyte marker). Stage III–V gametocytes lacking EXP1 were detected.
