   more detail about this publication

apical during merozoite
  • "As observed for PvMSP5, the pattern of fluorescent reactivity with antiserum to PkMSP5 was not consistent with the ‘bunch of grapes’ surface rim pattern typically seen with antibodies to other MSPs. Instead, the pattern seen was a single large dot or spot of fluorescence at one end of the merozoite...MSP5 was associated with an apical organelle approximate to the micronemes or over the polar cap "
