Expression and localization of PfARID in intraerythrocytic parasite stages (B and C) IFAs were performed on asexual (ring, trophozoite, and schizonts) and sexual stages (stage II to V gametocytes) using anti-mCherry antibody (in red) in combination with anti-PfNUP116 antibody (in green). (D) IFAs were performed on sexual stages using an a-mCherry antibody in combination with a-tubulin II (male gametocytes) or a-Pfg377 antibodies (female gametocytes). The parasite DNA was stained with DAPI (blue). Scale bar = 5 mm. Images are shown from representative experiments. Merge I, merged image for red and green channels; merge II, merged image for red and DAPI (blue) channels; GC, gametocytes.
