PF3D7_1136300 tudor staphylococcal nuclease

Expression of PfTSN in asexual blood stages of P. falciparum. (A) Immunofluorescence assay performed using anti-PfDTSN antisera (1:200 dilution) on thin blood smears of P. falciparum. PfTSN protein localized mainly in the nucleus in all three asexual blood stages, ring (a), trophozoite (b) and schizont (c) stages. DAPI staining was used to localize the P. falciparum nucleus. A pre-immune serum (1:50 dilution) was used as a control (d).
