   more detail about this publication

apical and not surface during merozoite
  • "Surprisingly, the pattern of fluorescent reactivity with antisera to PvMSP5 was not consistent with the bunch of grapes surface rim pattern typically seen with antibodies to MSP1, MSP2, MSP3, MSP4, or that reported for P. falciparum MSP5. Instead, the pattern seen consistently with either rabbit (Fig. 4B and E) or mouse (not shown) PvMSP5 antisera was that of a localization exhibiting as a single large dot or spot of fluorescence at the apical end of the merozoite."
