H3K9Me1 localized to the parasitophorous vacuole during the ring stage. Co-localization of H3K9Me1 with Etramp 2 (A) and 4 (B) was performed in ring and schizont stage parasites respectively. Similarly, co-localization of H4K5Ac with Etramp 2 (C) and 4 (D) was performed in ring and schizont stage parasites respectively. H3K9Me1/H4K5Ac and Etramp 2/4 were stained red and green respectively. DAPI stained nuclear DNA blue. Yellow and white arrows indicate foci of more intense fluorescence produced by H3K9Me1 and Etramp labeling respectively. In ring stage parasites, compared to schizonts, H3K9Me1 partially co-localized with Etramp 2 indicating localization to different compartments of the PV. H4K5Ac was localized solely to the nucleus and did not co-localize with either Etramp 2 or 4.
