Table 1 Comparison of the expression of overlapping regions of PkNBPXb at the surface of COS7 cells

From: Two functional reticulocyte binding-like (RBL) invasion ligands of zoonotic Plasmodium knowlesi exhibit differential adhesion to monkey and human erythrocytes

Region of PkNBPXb % of cells with surface protein expression (IFA – HA antibody) Binding to rhesus erythrocytes
I 1.1 % +/− 0.6 %
II * 3.8 % +/− 1.3 % +
III ** 0 N/A
IV 0.6 % +/− 0.4 %
V 1.8 % +/− 0.9 %
VI 1.2 % +/− 0.6 %
VII 7.3 % +/− 3.7 %
VIII 11.5 % +/− 2.2 %
  1. * Average number of rosettes for region II observed in fifty fields = 93.
  2. ** Surface expression was not observed in three separate experiments for this region.
