area near nucleus during schizont and sporozoite, during gametocyte and oocyst and schizont
  • "In IEM, sections of sporozoites and asexual blood stage schizonts were incubated with anti-PfCEN2 antibody. In P. falciparum sporozoites, IEM localization of PfCEN2 was observed as multiple dots in an area surrounding the nucleus suggesting a possible association with the centrosome (Fig. 5A). Similarly, in blood form schizonts, immunogold particles were seen to be associated with an area in proximity to the nucleus (Fig. 5B)."
