AMA-1 is considered plausible vaccine candidate antigen, as studies show it to be conserved, with limited polymorphism reported when compared with other merozoite antigens (Remarque et al., 2008).
In some scientists' article, they assessed the roles of PP5 of second-generation merozoites in Eimeria tenella in the anticoccidial activity of TEM and quantitative real-time PCR were used to monitor the ultrastructural changes of EtPP5.
Over 7-10 days, the parasites develop and divide into merozoites that are released into the blood stream.

In addition, GPI anchored proteins, merozoite surface protein 1 (MSP1) and MSP2, two major asexual blood stage surface antigens, have endotoxin activity that indeed results in decreasing frequency of the parasitic load from host.
merozoite into erythrocyte begins with an initial weak attachment of the merozoite to the red blood cell (RBC) surface through yet-unidentified parasite receptor-RBC interaction, followed by a reorientation that ultimately brings the apical end of the merozoite into close apposition with the RBC surface (4,5).
Within an hour, the sporozoites enter the liver and begin to multiply and mature into the merozoite form.
Sporozoites navigate to the liver where they invade hepatic cells, shift to a new form called the merozoite, and multiply, eventually being released into circulation where they can continue an invade-multiplyrelease cycle, now dependent on erythrocytes.

The polymorphism is unevenly distributed among the loci; loci encoding proteins expressed on the surface of the sporozoite or the merozoite (AMA-1, CSP, LSA-1, MSP-1, MSP-2, and MSP-3) are more polymorphic than those expressed during the sexual stages or inside the parasite (EBA-175, Pfs25, PF48/45, and RAP-1).
