Immunofluorescence assay of P. falciparum rings, trophozoites and schizonts with anti-PfPAT mouse sera. Specific mouse sera raised against unique peptides derived from each of the PfPATs (=DHHC; PfPAT-1, -2, -3 and -7) were used for immunostaining of slides smeared with P. falciparum rings, trophozoites and schizonts. PfDHHC PAT -1, -2, -3 and -7 are expressed in schizonts with minimal staining observed at ring and trophozoite stages.
