PfCENH3 is expressed at the perinuclear regions while PfH3 localizes to nucleus. (A, B) The confocal images for immuno-fluorescence assays represent the subcellular localization pattern of PfCENH3 and PfH3 (green) with respect to the Hoechst stained nucleus (blue) at ring, trophozoite and schizont stages of P. falciparum respectively. While PfH3 localizes throughout the nuclear mass, PfCENH3 localizes towards perinuclear regions at various intraerythrocytic stages. At ring stage, PfCENH3 localizes as a single cluster per nucleus. At trophozoite and schizont stages it localizes as discrete spots on each nucleus. Scale bar = 5 mm.
