Immunofluorescence analysis of PfPol I (red). Ring-stage parasites show a half-moon perinuclear nucleolus. In trophozoites, PfPol I shows an additional diffuse pattern in the nucleoplasm and cytoplasm. In schizont segmented forms, PfPol I appears to relocalize at the nuclear periphery. Parasite nuclei are shown by DAPI staining (blue). (Scale bars, 2 μm.)
