IFA with anti-PfGEXP10 antibody on early and mid-stage gametocytes. Fixed, permeabilized 3D7 gametocytes were simultaneously incubated with the serum against the PfGEXP10 protein or a control anti-GST antiserum (red fluorescence) and a serum against the gametocyte PVM marker PfMdv-1/peg3 (green fluorescence). Nucleus-specific Hoechst staining is shown on the right. 1 and 5, stage I; 2, stage II; 3 and 6, stage III; 4, late stage IV. Bar, 5 mm. Unlike the anti-GST control antiserum, the anti-PfGEXP10 antiserum reacted with stage I and mid-stage gametocytes and clearlyshowed a punctate fluorescence pattern beyond the PV compartment.
