Figure 11.20.1. Typical appearance of a plot of DNA content (UV-excited blue Hoechst 33342 fluorescence) and RNA content (blue-excited green thiazole orange fluorescence) of a population of RBCs infected with Pf. Both DNA and RNA content are displayed on logarithmic scales. Gametocytes are not shown. From Grimberg et al. (2008).
