Effect of compound 5(R) on the development of P. falciparum. A tightly synchronized culture of P. falciparum at ring stage was treated or not
with 2 μM 5(R). (B) Immunofluorescence assay on infected erythrocytes at time 45 h, at segmented schizont stage. Formation of merozoites membrane
was visualized by labeling the internal membrane complex (α-mTIP) and the membrane surface (α-MSP1). The labeling of nuclei with Hoechst
showed that all merozoites, in control and treated parasites, possessed a nucleus. daughter cells developed normally in the presence of compound 5(R) and that the DNA content of the newly formed merozoites seemed unaffected by the treatment.
