PF3D7_0905100 nucleoporin NUP221, putative

Upper: Colocalization of PfCENH3 with PfCENP-C. Confocal images showing the co-localization of the putative PfCENP-C (red) and PfCENH3 (green) at the nuclear periphery. The nucleus is stained with Hoechst (blue). Scale bar = 5 mm.

Lower: The fluorescence pattern obtained on merging PfCENH3 and PfNup100with the nucleus depicts that PfCENH3 localizes to the nuclear periphery just outside the Hoechst stained nucleus but well within the PfNup100 that marks the outer nuclear boundaries.
