PF3D7_1133400 apical membrane antigen 1

Immunolocalization of SEA1 to a nuclear location. (A) IFA showing localization and relative intensity of SEA1-HA3 signals in trophozoite (top)-, schizont (middle)-, and merozoite (bottom)-stage parasites. Scale bar, 10mm. DIC, differential interference contrast. (B) IFA showing localization of SEA1-HA3 and AMA1 in schizonts. The HA signal is strongest in less mature schizonts (bottom right) than in very mature segmented schizonts that express the late-stage marker protein AMA1 (top left). Scale bar, 10mm. (C) Superresolution immunofluorescence images showing localization of SEA1-HA3 in proximity to other proteins at the nuclear periphery. SEA1-HA3 loci are closely flanked by sometimes twinned a-tubulin signals (left) and, slightly further away, by often twinned signals for the centrosome marker centrin (right). Scale bars, 5mm.
