cytoplasmic foci and nucleus during tachyzoite
  • "Immunofluorescence and confocal microscopy revealed that Tg-AGO accumulates in tachyzoites mostly as granules of unidentified nature, but this labeling was superimposed over a diffuse cytoplasmic signal (Figure 7B and data not shown). Using acetylated histone H4 as a marker, confocal analyses also revealed a faint nuclear staining indicating that a minor portion of Tg-AGO localizes to the nucleus."
  • Microscopy type: light
  • Microscopy method: HA tag
