apical and not surface during sporozoite
  • "We examined the surface localisation and secretion of EtMIC4, together with that of EtMIC1, another sporozoite microneme protein which contains TSP-1-like repeats and has the same conserved TM-CT sequence as EtMIC4. In methanol-permeabilised, freshly-hatched sporozoites ( Fig. 5), it can be seen that both EtMIC1 and EtMIC4 are localised predominantly within the apical tip of the parasite. However, in paraformaldehyde-fixed, non-permeabilised sporozoites, EtMIC4 is readily detected on the surface, whereas EtMIC1 staining is absent."
