e, Nuclear development in PfCRK4-depleted parasites (D10 parent, representative of three biological replicates, and results with P2G12-PfCRK4-HA-DD). Scale bar, 2 μm. f, Immunofluorescence detection of spindle structures in PfCRK4-depleted parasites (P2G12 parent, representative of two biological replicates). Tub, tubulin. Scale bar, 2 μm. g, Quantification of centriolar plaques by immunofluorescence in PfCRK4-depleted parasites (D10 parent; P value, chi-square test; representative of two biological replicates and results with P2G12-PfCRK4-HA-DD). Cen, centrin. Scale bar, 1 μm. Analysis of nuclei stained with fluorescent DNA-specific dyes confirmed that the nuclei did not divide and revealed a substantially

distorted nuclear morphology (e). Hemispindle structures were evident in PfCRK4-depleted cells (f); however, they were greatly

enlarged relative to spindles in wild-type parasites and might account for the nuclear distortion.
