PF3D7_1105000 histone H4

Immunofluorescence analysis of histone modifications in P. falciparum. (b) Immunofluorescence analysis of H4K31ac (in red) in asexual stages following 12 hours of treatment with DMSO (vehicle) or FR235222 HDAC inhibitor. Parasite nuclear DNA was stained with Hoechst (blue). Scale bar, 10 mm. We observed an apparent non-overlapping staining for acetylated and methylated H4K31 and more specifically a discrete focal distribution of H4K31me1 at the nuclear periphery.
