during not ring, parasite plasma membrane and rhoptry during extracellular merozoite and late schizont and trophozoite
  • "No fluorescence was detected in ring-stage parasites, but trophozoites, schizonts and free merozoites were observed to fluoresce. Staining was observed in a rim-like pattern around the circumference of trophozoites and merozoites (both within intact schizonts and as free merozoites released from a rupturing schizont), an appearance indicative of the membrane location. Of interest, staining appeared to be more pronounced at one end of the free merozoites (Fig. 4)."
