Abstract

Immunoelectron microscopy demonstrated the presence of Pf155/RESA in dense granules of Plasmodium falciparum merozoites rather than in micronemes as previously suggested. Since the dense granules are released after the merozoite enters the parasitophorous vacuole, the role of Pf155/RESA in invasion and subsequent steps of parasite development may differ from that of a molecule located in the micronemes.
