Cadherin localization in primary SkMC cultures. Indirect immunofluorescence assays showing: (A) 2-day-old myoblasts under multiplication and differentiation. Cadherin (in green) is strongly marked in every cell with high concentrations in edges near the membrane and points of cell-cell contact (arrows). (B) apparently, the existence of a single newly internalized parasite (inset) did not lead to any change in the profile of cadherin expression and distribution in host cells (arrow). Nuclei of cells and parasites are labeled with DAPI, in blue. Bars, 20 μm
