euchromatin and not heterochromatin during ring and schizont and trophozoite
  • "Colocalization analysis shows PfH2A.Z overlap with the euchromatin marks H3K9ac and H3K4me3 but not with the subtelomeric heterochromatin marks H3K9me3 and HP1."
  • Microscopy type: Fixed Light, EM
  • Microscopy method: antibody directly to protein
