more detail about this publication
"We report here that malarial invasion into these hosts is mediated by a protein, designated cell-traversal protein for ookinetes and sporozoites (CelTOS), which is localized to micronemes. CelTOS is deposited as a trail during sporozoite gliding. Salivary gland sporozoites were allowed to glide in chamber slides at 37C for 1 h and fixed with paraformaldehyde, followed (Triton) or not followed (Triton) by permeabilization."
Microscopy type: Electron
Microscopy method: antibody directly to protein
