Stage-specific subcellular localization of PfFKBP35 and PfCnA proteins. Stages of parasite growth are indicated on the right. Both proteins (green) were probed with their primary antibody followed by FITC-conjugated secondary antibody. Nuclei (red) were stained with TO-PRO-3 iodide. All panels are super-impositions of the two stains, showing intracellular location of the proteins relative to the nucleus. Note that yellow or orange indicates
co-localization of green and red, signifying nuclear location of the protein, whereas green indicates cytoplasmic location. A significant amount of PfFKBP35 translocated to the nucleus as the rings differentiated into trophozoites and schizonts. PfCN, on the other hand, remained essentially in the cytoplasm when expressed.
