GEXP07-GFP is not detectable at the infected RBC membrane. (A) Whole-cell immunofluorescence of GEXP07-GFP parasites labeled with anti-KAHRP (green) and anti-GFP (green). Nuclei were stained with DAPI (blue). Projections of Z stacks are shown. Scale bar=5 mm. (B) Sheared remnant membranes from RBCs infected with 3D7 and GEXP07 were labeled with anti-KAHRP (red) and anti-GFP (green). CellMask (CM) reveals each of the membrane discs in the sample (gray). Scale bar=5 mm. The fluorescence profile for GEXP07-GFP is quite different from that of the RBC membrane-associated protein, KAHRP.
