nucleus during ring and trophozoite, cytoplasm during gametocyte and schizont and trophozoite, not nucleus during gametocyte and schizont
  • "These proteins were present predominantly inside the nucleus in the ring stages as indicated by co- localization with nuclear dye DAPI (Fig. 6B). PfSRPK1 and PfSR1 were present in the nucleus of ~75% of rings and young trophozoites that were analyzed. As the parasites matured, PfSRPK1 and PfSR1 seemed to be exported to nuclear periphery and/or cytoplasm in mature trophozoites. Both these proteins were predominantly in the cytoplasm of most (>80%) schizonts. Interestingly, both PfSRPK1 and PfSR1 are present in the cytoplasm of gametocytes with possibly only a small fraction in the nucleus (Fig. 6B). "
