PfGAMA and PfMSP10 interact directly. IFA analysis of PfGAMA and PfMSP10. As labeled, free merozoites were co-stained with anti-PfGAMA antibodies, anti-PfMTIP (myosin tail interacting protein) antibodies, or anti-MSP10 antibodies, with (+) and without (–) permeabilization with 0.1% Triton X-100. Cells were co-stained with DAPI (for parasite nuclei localization). The left most panels and right most panels shows images of differential interference contrast (DIC) and merged pictures, respectively.
