Nuclear expression and cellular localization of PfHP1. (B) IFA analysis of PfHP1 (green) throughout the parasite asexual blood stage cycle (ring, trophozoite and schizont stages). (C) In ring stage, partial co-localization between PfHP1 (red) and PfSir2 (green) antibodies (yellow spots) is observed. (D) Co-localization with a nucleolar marker PfNop1 shows minimal overlap of PfHP1 with this compartment. Scale bars represent 1 mm.
