Morphological analyses. A) RNA dye staining of P. falciparum during schizont, trophozoite, and ring stages of erythrocyte life cycle were colored in green. RNA dyes were obtained using excitation 438/24 and emission 542/27 for 107F and 107E, and a red filter excitation 500/24 and emission 624/40 for 132A. B) RNA dyes are sensitive enough to detect merozoites and gametocytes in culture.
