localization of p44 in P. falciparum 3D7 strain. A Different stages, i.e., ring, trophozoites, schizonts, and merozoites of the P. falciparum 3D7 strain, were fixed and stained with purified anti-Pfp44 antibody. Bright field image (i), image of cell stained with DAPI (ii), Immunof-luorescently stained cell with anti-Pfp44 antibodies (iii), and merged images (iv). Pfp44 is present mostly in nucleus in the merozoite and ring stages (a and d) but in trophozoite and schizont stages, the localization spreads to cytoplasm also (b–c).
