Progesterone-binding membrane protein location in Taenia solium cysticerci by immunofluorescence. a Representative transversal sections of T. solium cysticerci where tegument, sub-tegument and cells are observed with optical microscopy illumination (Nomarski microscopy). b Negative control of immunofluorescence using the secondary antibody. c Specific detection of progesterone binding membrane protein in parasite (arrows) cells mainly located all along subtegumental tissue (magnification of 100×). d Detail of c showing T. solium cells expressing PGRMC exclusively on subtegument cells (arrows) at higher magnification (400×) from shows in. Abbreviations: T, tegumental cells; GL, germinal layer. Scale-bars: a, 10 μm; b, 10 μm; c, 10 μm; d,10 μm; e, 10 μm; f, 10 μm
