Who localised this protein by microscopy?

Zhang, H., Compaore, M. K., Lee, E. G., Liao, M., Zhang, G., Sugimoto, C., Fujisaki, K., Nishikawa, Y., Xuan, X.
Apical membrane antigen 1 is a cross-reactive antigen between Neospora caninum and Toxoplasma gondii, and the anti-NcAMA1 antibody inhibits host cell invasion by both parasites. (2007 Feb, Mol Biochem Parasitol) PubMed / full text
