Upper 2 panels: Colocalization of gene expression sites with nuclear pores. (A) Combination of anti-PfNup116 immuno-fluorescence staining with RNA-FISH using a probe against the active var gene expressed in 3D7-G7 clone (PF3D7_0412700). Nucleus stained by DAPI. Bar, 1 μm.(B) As in (A) with FISH probe against 18S ribosomal RNA. (C) Fraction of cells with an overlap of FISH and nuclear pore foci. Lower panel: Colocalization of PfSet10-HA with nuclear pores. Combination of anti-PfNup116 and anti-HA immunofluorescence staining on early trophozoite stage parasite expressing recombinant PfSet10-HA. Nucleus stained by DAPI. Bar, 1 μm.
